SCHOOL ANNUAL CHESS TOURNAMENT
The annual school chess tournament was well supported, with around 80 students competing during lunchtimes in Term One. Some games were short and others were tense and exciting, taking several sessions to reach a conclusion. It was great to see students come and have a go, gaining points for their house. This year we also had a record number of girls entering which was pleasing to see.
The results for 2019 are:
Year 7: Dylan Tran Rhys McFarlane
Year 8: Claire Ma Ella Hill
Year 9: Marcus Tupou Josh Tamblin

Well done to all of the students who entered the tournament this year. Thank you also to the supporters who came along to watch their friends and other students who were playing. Next year, Ms Thorne will be taking over the running of the tournament, as I will be teaching at the Istanbul International Community School.
