Chess Champions

Congratulations to our students from the OC who represented our school in the Interschool Chess Challenge last Friday organised by the Sydney Academy of Chess.

It was a huge day of mental tactics, strategy and intense concentration! Many schools from across the region were represented including Plattsburg, St Phillips College, Valentine and HSPA.

The competition was extremely close throughout the day and our students showed great sportsmanship and encouragement of each other.

Overall, our team finished 2nd place, just half a point behind Plattsburg, who were the day’s winners. Congratulations also to Dan, who placed 2nd in the individual scores. Our school has made it through to the semi-finals which will be held next term.

A big thank you also to our wonderful parents who helped make this event possible by providing transport to and from the venue.
