We have spent the first few days at the Nationals experiencing Melbourne weather at its best - Everything from humidity, sunshine to storms and heavy rain! We have nicer rooms this year but still no hot water most of the time, so we are having very quick showers. :-)
We walked to the Victoria Markets Sunday morning - got wet going there and on our way home, were boiling hot. The boys played in the Warm up Comp on Sunday afternoon - where Riley drew for third spot.

Leeming SHS students have again been successful in winning a spot in the Nationals. They performed strongly at the States and drew for second spot. They have been fundraising selling chocolates and setting up a GoFundMe page to help subsise the trip. All up, they reduced their final amount by $130 per student.

A group of very excited students arrived in Melbourne for the Chess Nationals on the weekend. It has been quite cool, with us all wearing warm jackets. The dorms are pretty basic and Dylan and Morgan were sharing their room with a very inquisitive little mouse!
On Sunday morning, we walked into the city and after 9kms, arrived back home with a group of very grumpy kids complaining about the merits of exercise (Not!)
The Individual tournament was held yesterday, with Paddy an...Read Full Post »

Finally, we are starting to receive some of our new furniture. Beautiful teal blue booths for upper school students as well as a fantastic matching 'S' shaped seating area.
Students are enjoying the new layout and have been very helpful getting things set up.
