Chess Tournament with CSC (Chess in Schools and Communities) on Saturday 30 November 2019, by Mrs Harris

Date: 2nd Dec 2019 @ 11:38am

Our lady and St. Edwards Catholic Primary School were fortunate enough to be asked to host the Chess in Schools and Communities chess tournament on Saturday 30 November 2019.

The tournament was very well attended and all the young people who took part had an opportunity to practice the skills they had been learning in school.

The standard was incredibly high and there were many closely fought contests!!!

As observers it was a privilege to watch the children demonstrate such resilience and ability.


Well done to everyone who took part ♟♟♟
