St Andrews College Senior Team have been playing at recess and lunchtime and the competition has been good practise.

“As a newcomer to Chess it was a great honour to visit St Andrews College and play against their most experienced chess players. I have practised against my teammates at lunch and recess and learned new things and a better way to play chess.” said Adam Jones from Gilroy Catholic College.

There you have it readers practise makes perfect!

Congratulations to Fatog Makog, Darrmyen Deligero and James Biniahan who won their 3rd Round matches.

The Junior and Intermediate Chess Teams went to Girraween, Quakers Hill and the Australian International Academy to compete on Friday 27th of May. All teams fought gallantly. The Juniors unfortunately were out played losing all matches. They have assured us of a better performance on home turf on Friday the 6th of June.

Intermediate A had a successful night with three wins and a draw. Hopefully their winning form carries over to next round. Intermediate B was one of the major success stories of the night completing a clean sweep of the opposition.

Congratulations to all.
