Seeing is believing!  Would you think that 10 and 11 year olds could be this focussed on the second last day of school in June?
These are photos of our school bridge tournament on June 24th. With 55 kids involved, we had eight tables of bridge and four tables of mini-bridge, which is a bridge game without the bidding, for the students who were not ready for the real thing. The kids who played mini bridge are seen in the hall.  A senior student ran that part of the tournament.  Seven students who belong to the after school bridge club, which was started in the fall and continued under the supervision of a grade seven teacher in my absence, helped to make the day a successful one.
The helpers moved the boards, helped the east /west pairs move after each round, helped scoring on the travellers, presented the trophies, the certificates and the gift bags from ACBL.
Dominos donated eight large pizzas, which were enjoyed at nutrition break, while they waited for the results.
The vice principal who is a huge supporter of school bridge because of the enhancement of arithmetic skills, logic, reasoning and inference skills is moving to Barrie.  She asked me to help her get the bridge programme started in her new school in the fall.  A representative from the Ministry of Education visited the classroom in the fall and was very impressed with the bridge program which just happened to be going on the day she came to see what Notre Dame was doing differently.  The test results were higher than the provincial average.  Thus her visit.
Youth bridge is alive and well in Orillia.
