Chess Match

Students playing chess

On Wednesday, 22 children from years 3-6 competed against Mr Peter Garrett in a Chess Simul. All the children performed wonderfully well and showed great discipline and resilience. Mr Garrett commented on how well the children played and described some of the players as, “Tenacious.” A special mention goes to Ruby, Lois and Noah who were all credited with a draw by Mr Garrett. This is a massive achievement against such an experienced and accomplished player. We would like to send a special ‘Thank You’ to Mr Garrett for his time and effort, our wonderful PTFA for supporting the club from the outset and Poulton Chess Club for loaning us some extra chess sets for the event.
