Back To School

Happy September!  I trust everyone had a fabulous summer and have settled nicely into their back to school routine.

We had a very busy summer with 2 camps in July:  Chess and Lego.  Both were a huge success with LEGO Camp being sold out.  Strategies and tactics were shared at Chess Camp and many intricate, unique creations were pieced together at LEGO Camp.  The camp staff had a great time and hope all our campers did as well.

City Chess Club starts up again later this month.  The fall session runs from September 27 – November 29 and winter session is January 10 – March 7.  Please go to the “What’s Happening” tab for the club flyer/registration form.  Registration may be done by mail or onsite on the 27th.  If you attended Chess Camp 2017, we have a great deal for you if you register for fall and winter session.

Hope to see many of you on September 27th at the London Waldorf School.

Camp Update

There are a few spaces left in Chess Camp 2017 so if you’re still looking for an awesome fun filled week for your child, please register soon.


Mr. Lee


We would like to express our sincerest thanks to all teachers, parents and coaches who brought their students to this year`s two day version of the Grade by Grade.  We appreciate your hard work in organizing buses, gathering permission slips, finding playoff drivers, collecting cash, directing students to their playing sections, score keeping a section and troubleshooting issues with your students on site.  The event was a great success, thanks to so many supporters and volunteers!

We had nearly 1,000 students participating this year and over 31,000 in our 25 year history.  An amazing accomplishment indeed!

The Ontario Youth Chess Championship is the weekend of May 6th and 7th.  For students who finished in the top three and are interested in competing at the Provincial level, please check out the links below for more information.
The 2017 Teams Chess Tournament has been rescheduled for Friday, May 5th at St. Catherine of Siena.  Registration for teams of 4 are completed through schools only.  Information can be found under “What’s Happening”.  We hope to see many competitors there.
