Some very exciting news to report about our 4 fantastic teams who competed in the Primary Schools Chess Competition on Fridays after school during Term 2 and early this term. The final standings are as follows:
Rookie Team (Chi Chi P, Dominic S, Scout H, Xavier S, Sebastien Sir)
- Finished in 1st place with 24 points!
- This team lead their grouping from the 3rd week and never looked back. Many of the team are relatively new to chess so this is a particularly thrilling result!
Championship Team (Keshav M, Ryan B, Elliot L, Jarod C, Daya C-H)
- Finished in 3rd with 17 points. There were only 2.5 points that separated 1st and 3rd, so a very tight competition and the closest result of all the divisions.
Intermediate Team (Sean B, Yasha B, Samuel L, Rex F, Brigitte S)
- Finished in 3rd with 24 points. This team had to play at least 2 more games than our other teams due to the popularity of this division.
Rookie Junior Team (Nathan C, Jeremy R, Harry P, Mi Mi P, Liam McW)
- Finished in 3rd with 18.5 points. To have this success at such a young age is very exciting for the Chess Club.
A massive CONGRATULATIONS to all of these students. All of the teams were new to their level of competition which makes the final results even more impressive.
