This week, 14 of our Chess Club students competed at the Regional Chess Tournament at the Cararra Indoor Sports Stadium. This is a very big tournament with almost 900 students from all over the Gold Coast competing.
I was very proud of our students for their wonderful representation of our school. They were very respectful, competitive, modest, and learnt from their chess experiences throughout the day. Our C Division team finished 2nd overall – well done Amity, Sebe, Alex G and Alex B. Arabella also did very well, finishing 3rd overall in G Division.
Our entire Regional chess team should be commended on their performance and behaviour throughout the day. Thank you to Mr Burrows who led the team and to the many parent volunteers who assisted with transport and supervision on the day. Great job!
