A big congratulations goes out to all students who represented Nelson in the District Chess tournament. Participants were Grayson Dinan, Cameron MacCullum, Lana Killbride, Ryan Barrieau, Rory Barrieau, Ben Daigle, Dustin Crandall, Parker Mullin, Garret O'Neill, Becca Seaman, Ryan Flynn. All students did a fantastic job and showed great sportsmanship.

Four of our students received medals and they will be going on to the Provincial Chess tournament in Bathurst in April!

Ryan Flynn in grade 8 received bronze,

Grayson Dinan in grade 2 received silver,

Garret O'Neill in grade 6 received Gold and Cameron MacCullum in grade 3 who also received Gold!

They should all be very proud of themselves! They played great matches! Good luck to our four students continuing on to Provincials!
