Our second ChessKid Tournament this year was held at Launceston College. From the Junior School, we had 13 participants who all walked away very proud of their efforts!

There were 9 players in the Junior B team and 4 players in the Junior A team. Our Junior B team came away with the win due to some incredible performances across all players. Hugo Clifton (Year 3) won the Junior B competition with Henry Lloyd (Year 4) coming in second and Charlie Johnson (Year 3) in third. Elise Kwong (Year 4) received the most improved girl player and top girl in the Junior B competition. In the Junior A competition, our team came second overall with Makaela Fulton (Year 5) performing as the top girl. All of our chess players were considerate and participated with integrity  – they should be very proud.

The next tournament will be held in August. We look forward to competing again then!
