Last week Tuesday, we got a chance to play the inaugural game on the brand new chess board. The chess board was the latest and last addition to our beautiful new playground. The children watched excitedly as the pieces were brought out and placed on the board (some pieces are half their size)! The “opening” game was played by the teachers – girl teachers vs boy teachers.
The classes are really enjoying the quiet, logic-based, problem-solving game and love playing it when needing to take a break from their other favourite, the trampoline! It has been wonderful watching them and they love to play in teams with input from all the team members.
Some of the children, who have been attending our Chess Sport option (keep an eye on the Sport brochure next year) have been showing off their skills and some of the amazing moves they have mastered during these lessons.
Grade Ones have all the fun!
