As a means of further developing our curriculum and the cognitive ability of our students, we offer a Chess program to all students.
Chess is the original and enduring "thought sport" played throughout the world and has many benefits for young people. These include improved cognitive skills as well as self confidence and resilience. With the coaches who rank among the best players in the country our chess programs are tailored to suit the needs of all abilities.
Chess is a very inclusive, educational and intriguing game that has the ability to develop lifelong skills, such as:
Problem solving, abstract analysis, spatial aptitude, verbal reasoning, logical thinking, critical thinking, intellectual maturity, originality, cognitive skill enhancement, concentration, memory and organisational skills.
The Company Kids Unlimited run the program for our school. The students participate in a one hour coaching session each Thursday, during the luncheon recess or after school.
