Miramichi rural students Alex Dowling and Nicholas Cabana-Whitely competed over the weekend in the North Anglophone School District which was held in Rexton. They both played very tough matches with students from across the district. Alex won a match in his grade level, which was one of the largest groups in the tournament! Great job Alex! Also, Nicholas Cabana Whitely placed 2nd in his grade level and qualified for the Provincial Chess Tournament which will be held on April 22nd! Congratulations Nicholas! Pictures of the chess tournament are posted on the school website image gallery!
In order to continue to promote a positive learning environment, we are increasing the number of ways we recognize students on a monthy basis.
