I'm proud to say that our re-launch session on the 21st July 2012 went very well. We had 4 students arrive on the day! The aim is to grow the numbers of students to a minimum of 8 up to a maximum of 16 (or more once more volunteers become available).
Overall the students were very quick to learn and enjoy some chess concepts from Bob Wildig. Bob is the junior chess player coordinator. They were simulating playing chess after only 30 minutes of being taught by Bob so a big thank you to Bob. For more information please visit the Rugby Chess Club link.
During the art session the students had fun exercising their creative side with the art templates by developing their free-hand drawing techniques.
Additionally, the students enjoyed and communicated well during the electronics and computer program activity. They were set a challenge and all students put forward their ideas. What was great that one student gave and answer that was almost the correct answer - after only one session!
Overall we were happy to work with this group of young people as they behaved really well and we were glad to be part of their development and enhancing of their natural abilities - so a big well done to the group.
Keep up the great work!
