The College’s chess teams played well in the Interschool Chess Online National Finals this week, with Berwick Campus student Jing Jing (Year 5) being awarded joint best female player in the Primary Division.
After progressing from the State Finals in October, the students competed across three categories. Our Primary Years team finished 7th, our Middle Years team finished 9th, and our Open Years team finished 12th.
“The competition was against the strongest players in Australia, so we are all happy and satisfied. Overall, it was a great honour to play for the school, and I look forward to playing more chess next year,” said Berwick Campus student John (Year 7).
“I had the time of my life, met new people, made new friends, and had an amazing time playing chess and talking to friends. I won some games and lost games, but it was all fun and I had a great time,” said Pakenham Campus student Cooper (Year 6).
Well done to our talented chess players!
