Date: March 12, 2019    Posted by: Sue Wicks

It was great to see 294 students competing in Round 1 of the Far North Queensland Interschool Chess Championships last Thursday,7 March.  The Bishop Centre was bursting with intellectual activity as the best chess players in our region participated in the game that is the gymnasium for the mind.
