Top result at Mona Vale Chess Competition

On Wednesday 26th March, 15 students from John Colet competed at the Northern Beaches Primary Schools Chess Challenge 2014.  72 Teams (216 students) from across the Northern Beaches played 7 rounds of chess at Mona Vale Public School.  The John Colet children were magnificent – wonderfully behaved, great sportsmen and sportswomen.  What a great day.

The Bonus is the result – our A Team WON, with a perfect score!!!
This is the first time John Colet has ever won this tournament and the first time I can recall a perfect score from a John Colet team.
Secondly, our D team (all girls) came 2nd in the Girls’ division!

The final points ended up as follows:

Team A – (Jarod C, Ryan B, Sean B ) – 21 points:  All 3 won all their games!!
Team B – (Xavier S, Dominic S, Lucas van de S) – 13.5 points
Team E – (Daniel S, Thomas J, Kai P) – 12 points
Team C – (Nathan C, Justin T, Harry P) – 11 points
Team D – (Brigitte S, Mi Mi P, Ashleigh E) – 11 points:  2nd Place in the Girls division!!

Such a fabulous effort and such a privilege to watch them all do so well.
Thank you to Clare J and Mariana P for assisting me with supervision and/or transport.

Yours strategically,
