Chess Competition (Classes I to IX)

“A game of Chess is not an examination of knowledge,

It is a battle of nerves.”

-by David Bronstein

Chess may not be the easiest game to learn, but it is far from the most difficult. You have to learn the moves of the six pieces, where the piece with the least value, the Pawn, has the most complicated moves.It actually is an incredibly beneficial mental activity, because playing chess results in better brain function, improved memory and cognitive abilities, strategic thinking and attention improvement.

What chess also helps teach students is all about winning and losing. Sportsmanship is a vital part of chess and students are taught early on about how to react when they win a game and to think about the feelings of the opposing players.

Students from all the classes participated in the competition. It was a “House Competition” and was further subdivided into Juniors and Seniors. Winners are:
