Starting in September 2022, Pawn Waves program will be available to all schools in Nova Scotia that wish to offer an Out-of-School Learning opportunity for chess. The specially developed curriculum will allow adults and seniors with no prior knowledge of chess to offer 30 learn & play sessions per year to children of all ages. The program will be actively supported by Chess Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia Scholastic Chess Association.

Curriculum is being developed in partnership with various Internet chess & education providers. Major developments will be posted on our News page. The curriculum will be reviewed when ready by the Department of Education, Nova Scotia.
