This entry was posted in Oakville Elementary News.

On Friday, April 10, the Oakville Elementary campus hosted Rotherglen’s 15th annual Chess for Charity tournament. It was an exciting and very busy day with over 200 students from 11 schools competing. In addition to the regular competition, the participants were treated to a very special surprise – Grand Master Chess Champion and Canadian Chess Team coach, Youri Otchkous, was present at the tournament and played 8 chess games simultaneously against various student opponents. A total of $1,620.00 in donations was received in support of the Rotherglen Children’s REACH Foundation.
