Second Place in Chess Nationals
They have trained hard all year.
Teachers and chess mentors Mr Sergio De Lima and Mr Christian Ampongan were always ready to guide and encourage at every recess and lunchtime. Students consistently practised with different opponents to learn strategy and develop skill.
Following several qualifying tournaments, the All Girls Chess team were on their way to The University of Melbourne on Monday for the two day Chess Nationals.
The best players from all over Australia come to Melbourne for this event. Competition at this level is always tough, but our players, once again, did us proud.
By the end of the first day of competition, the girls were placed 12th overall in Oceania!
By the conclusion of the exhausting competition, our talented chess team placed second!
We are so proud of the students and teachers for their commitment to the sport.
