Our school chess team continues to go from strength to strength this year and recently their hard work, commitment and endeavour came to fruition in the National finals which were held at Melbourne University. The children played against 28 of the very best teams in Australia and New Zealand with approximately 150 children participating. At the end of two gruelling days our team held their nerve and ground and finally won third place overall!
The competition was so tight with only 2 points separating first and third place which makes their effort and achievement even more special.
The following children also received a trophy for their efforts:
A sincere congratulations and well done to Archit, Ryley, Tejas, Nikhil, Rahul, Omika, Okith and Hemish as everyone in our school is extremely proud of you! Also thank you to the numerous parents who supported the children in this tournament and others throughout the year as your efforts are also appreciated!
