August 27, 2008
Welcome to the 2008/2009 Nova Scotia Math League Season. We're pleased to announce the appointment of our new provincial co-ordinator, Professor John Irving of Saint Mary's University, who has been actively involved with the NSML for over two years.
We are currently setting the dates for the upcoming season. Please contact us as soon as possible with dates that do not work for you. This includes exam days, PA/PD days, Winter and March break, previously planned school events (such as basketball tournaments, drama competitions, etc.). Remember, we do not have access to your school or school board's calendar. We will try to accomodate as many people as possible.
