There’s a Canadian Chess Challenger among us! Congratulations are in order for Grade 7 student, Tommy Deng, after he placed 5th in his division during the 31st Annual Canadian Chess Challenge held this month in British Columbia.
Tommy competed as a part of Team Nova Scotia, which was composed of 12 students ranging from Elementary to Senior High School. Tommy persevered through nine rounds against players from across the country, and placed 5th overall in Canada in his age group. Chess Club leader Mr. Tugwell is particularly proud of Tommy’s impressive accomplishment.
