Students from Year 7 to Year 12 meet once a week at lunch time for a social game of bridge. Beginners are welcome and those students who would like to develop their skills further are encouraged to participate in the Youth Bridge competitions and other activities held at the NSW Bridge Association.
How did bridge start?
