South Island Schools' Chess Championship

Caption:

Chess, a game of two identical armies making tactical advancements against each other. Knights, castles, kings and queens; this is a medieval war on a mini scale.   Ollie du Toit, Angus Whitteker, Ray Sun and James Burt travelled to Ashburton for the South Island Schools' Chess Championship where they met the best school teams in the South Island.  The standard of play was high and out Cathedral Grammar team was strongly competitive. The final results had Grammar placed third, a mere one point (one game) behind the second-placed team.  We are now looking forward to next year!     Thank you to Mr Brooke for training, organizing and transporting us to this event.   Written by James Burt Y6B
