Chess Team Tournament

On Monday students from our class, 5/6D and 4S attended the 25th annual NSW Junior Chess Teams Tournament at the PCYC Broadmeadow. It was a terrific day with over 40 schools represented, 76 teams with students ranging from Yr 2 to Yr 6. I was so impressed with the way our Tighes Hill students behaved, competed and displayed sportsmanship. Congratulations to Joseph, Jack and Dan whose team placed 3rd, earning us a trophy to take back to school! Well done also to the students from Miss Drew’s and Mr Slade’s class, it was great to see so many enthusiastic chess players get involved in this event. Thank you to all the parents who helped with transport.
