Tuesday 15 November marked the second annual Chess in the Sun Day in Junior School. This event was held at lunchtime and celebrates the end of Chess Club for the year. It was fantastic to see so many girls from Prep to Year 6 playing chess against one another, and not just current members of the Chess Club. The girls were both strategic and competitive as they tested their skills against one another and there were many calls for rematches.
Chess Club is an excellent way for girls to develop their higher order thinking and problem solving skills. This year we have consistently run two weekly classes, both novice and advanced classes. Each girl is recognised for her progress.
It is fantastic to see this level of enthusiasm from the girls and we look forward to continuing with the Chess Club instructors from Dark Horse Chess in 2017.
