Here you will find all the information that is available about the Chess Club and any Chess Competitions.
Chess Club - boys and girls in Years 4 - 8 - takes place on Thursdays, 4.00 - 5.00pm in the Music Room. (Please note that the club meets immediately after school sport). Pupils must be collected promptly at 5.00pm. There is no supervision available after chess as Prep Room closes at 5.00pm.
The cost will be $30.00 per term from Term 11, but for the remainder of this term, the cost will be $20.00. This will be charged to your child's school account. The club is run by AJ Tyler. AJ is a former pupil, having left the school in 2010.
