There were 90 students competing from 8 schools . Each child had to play 7 timed matches which started at about 9.30am and went through till 2pm, when presentations were made. The team displayed a commendable attitude of sportsmanship, resilience and die-hard competitiveness. It was a very tough field! Daniel S from 5th class inspired the rest of the team with a very impressive score of 5.5/7, meaning that he only lost one match the whole day. He earned himself a Trophy for coming 5th overall and first from our school.
Maisy T from 6th class, a recent recruit to the Chess club, achieved a respectable result of 2.5 points and displayed a tenacious and positive attitude.
For the Semi-finals we will be able to take our strongest 5 Chess Players to compete with other School’s from across the State!
Next week we will be taking a diverse team of 12 to the Northern Beaches Primary School Chess Challenge at Mona Vale Public School.
