CHESS Tournament

posted 20 Jul 2014, 01:22 by Lynnette Glossop
Our chess team competed in the Annual Sheffield Schools' Chess tournament in July and finished in 2nd place JUST 1 point behind the champion school.  Our team concentrated very well on a hot July afternoon and everybody scored some very good wins. Players played 5 matches in all in an intense competition. Many, many thanks go to Mr. Farshad Ai who has run our chess club and team for 3 years. It has been a great club with many loyal members who have been building up their skill and chess moves!  Mr. Ai is now going to train as a teacher - we wish him well in this :) We are currently looking for a chess coach to take over the club.
