Grade 7 Garage Sale
This year in support of our grade 7 end of the year field trip, our grade 7 classes had a garage sale! On
Saturday, April 12th, divisions 1, 2, and 3 collected and donated tons of toys, books, games, clothes and much
more to sell. In total we got a lot of cool stuff and a tasty concession. We raised about $1,790.00!
Approximately $21.00 will be contributed towards each grade 7 student’s year end events.
On behalf of all the grade 7 classes we would like to thank everyone who donated, helped set up and
take down, and bought things. Because of this our grade 7s will be able to have fantastic field trips and special
events in June, making this the most fun year yet!

Chimney Hill Chess Tournament 2014
Chimney Hill’s fourth annual chess tournament was held on Friday, April 4th, 2014. Approximately 90
students in grades 4 to 7 participated, which is truly excellent! Students were enthusiastic, practiced good
sportsmanship, and displayed excellent self-regulation. It was a pleasure to supervise this enthusiastic group.
Our winners this year were:
1st Place - Sabari Muthukumaran - Grade 5, Div.9
2nd Place - Karm Bains - Grade 7, Div. 2
3rd Place - Brent Gascon - Grade 7, Div. 1
Thank you to the grade 7 students for helping with supervision
and setup. Thank you to our PAC for supplying the lovely chess sets for
the chess club. Thank you to the Administrators Mr. Baldry and Ms.
Schrag, for supporting the tournament and to Ms. Harms for being the
sponsor teacher. It is wonderful to see students enjoy chess so much,
and to have the opportunity to play other students at various grade
levels. For those interested in continuing to play over the summer, here
is a link to local junior chess: http://www.bcjuniorchess.com
