Chess Club

 

Chess is part of the curriculum in many nations. Studies have shown chess can

dramatically improve pupils levels of concentration, boost problem solving skills and develop their thought processes.

 

During Term 1 each year students in years 4 to 6 are invited to form classroom based

teams to compete in the annual Yangebup Chess Cup. Teams compete in a round robin format which provides opportunities for students to test themselves against different levels of ability.

Individual points are also earned by students during matches. The student with the overall highest score receives their own chess set to take home at the end of the season. 

 

The 2018 winner was Jenna in Year 6.
