On Saturday 11th March, three teams of enthusiastic Loreto chess players participated in the National Primary School’s U11’s Chess Team Championships at St Bernard’s Middle School. Amongst the three teams were two development teams that consisted of players new to chess, developing their skills, knowledge and understanding of game play. Some of our year 7 pupils managed the teams on the day, each taking it in turn to be a board manager whilst the teams played. The pupils had a fantastic day. The next big competition will be the Inter School chess tournament at the Caleta Hotel in a fortnights time.
