News from Armidale

Hey I know that woman. I had no idea she was a doctor. But what kind of doctor, I do not know! The Armidale Express has a report about their local chess scene:

Arguably, it is one of the most effective teaching tools available to children.

Not only does chess raise intelligence quotient (IQ) scores, it strengthens problem solving skills, teaces how to make difficult and abstract decisions independently and enhances reading, memory, language, and mathematical abilitie[sic].

In Young minds take to the chess board.
