FNQ Interschool Chess Championships Report Rd 1 2019

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.

The Trinity Anglican School teams applied high levels of concentration, perseverance and determination.  Sportsmanship, good manners and kindness are values we continue to uphold in our team.  Chess at TAS provides opportunities for students to pursue mastery or learn so they can play family and friends.
