Such a big team?!

We are so proud of Max Chen and Jeffrey Zhao, who represented Canada in the 2022 Youth Chess Olympiad in Azerbaijan!

Jeffrey joined the Seneca Hill Chess Program when he was in grade 1. A few years ago both Max and Jeffrey joined our Tuesday after school program at Zion Heights. They have grown so much as chess players since then.

We now welcome them back as our junior teachers in our Tuesday program. They are not only our chess teachers, but also our role models in chess. They continue to motivate and inspire our students on their journey to the world chess championship.
