The tournament for Term two was held at Fairfield Intermediate School in Hamilton.
In the Senior division there were 72 students from schools such as Hamilton Boys High, St Paul’s Collegiate, Te Kuiti, Hillcrest, Fairfield College, Rototuna Senior High and Ngaruawahia High School. There were four students from our school who participated in the tournament: Chamberlain Wipani, Devavrat Kumar, Turanga Richmond-Paul and Dante Brougham. All four boys enjoyed the experience of playing students who held National placings. All students had to play 7 games of 15 minutes each using timers. Our top student for the tournament was Dante Brougham who gained 29th place out of 72 students. A fantastic effort indeed! We are very proud of all our students’ efforts.
If any student would like to learn how to play Chess, we meet in B5 during break times.
