Chess History is Made in Canada

Postby chess4fun » Tue Mar 10, 2009 8:13 pm

Dear Colleagues,

I am very pleased to bring to your attention the fact that in this past week Chess is now being offered as a Board Approved and Authorized (BAA) high school course by the Ministry of Education in British Columbia. As far as I am aware, this is a "first" in Canada. To have Chess offered as a full credit high school course, on an equal with Science, Socials or Mathematics, is a significant achievement for the Canadian Chess community.

The course will be offered in SD#23 Okanagan, by high school teacher, Luke Campbell, in the 2009-10 school year. I think it is incumbent upon and in the best interest of the CFC and the Canadian Chess community to support Luke in this endeavour (in knowledge, equipment, books, publicity...etc.) as his successes may be a forerunner for similar approval in other provinces and school districts across Canada.

For further information you can contact Luke at "lcampbel at sd23 dot bc dot ca" or you can contact me at arnie_nermo at sd34 dot bc dot ca"

Thank you for your interest and support,

Arnie Nermo, B.Ed.
