A couple of weeks ago our chess club took part in a tournament against other Wellington Schools. They had a fantastic day and achieved some great results. 5 of the team have been chosen to attend the National Chess Tournament in Hamilton in October.
Over the last week Aila, Paul, Ngakaunui, Jeremiah and Lukas have been working with Max one of our Educational Assistants and Mr Winnie to hone their skills. On Thursday they hosted the Naenae Primary School chess team, who have also been chosen to go to the Nationals. It was fantastic to see the concentration on the boys faces as they pitted their skills against the Naenae children.
Over the next few months the boys will be continuing to play chess whenever they can. If you would like to challenge them to a game please pop into school and have a chat to Mr Winnie. I know he would welcome a break as he has now been beaten by Paul and Jeremiah a number of times
