The Chess team played three matches this term against De Le Salle, St John’s and St Benedict’s. The matches were challenging and the girls played well, holding their own. We won one match and lost two.
Inter House Chess was well supported, with much fierce competition between St George’s , St Andrew’s and St Patrick’s. St Andrew’s were the overall winners with 45 points. St George and St Patrick came second and third, respectively.
The Chess Club said goodbye to many long standing members as the girls leave APPS for senior school. The contribution the Grade 7 girls have made to the club and team over the past four years is greatly valued and they will be sorely missed.
To Mrs Pengelly for coaching the team, the parents who have offered lifts over the year and the Chess Captains’ mothers who have organised the chess suppers, a BIG THANK YOU. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Miss Gill Seebregts
