The annual chess tournament in school that takes place in Piercestown N.S. has kicked off. This sees all children from 3rd to 6th class compete through several rounds of chess before one champion emerges as the overall winner and receives the chess cup that is handed down from year to year.
The competition will also see class winners awarded for their successes.
3rd class began the tournament today with the first round. Many thanks to Mrs. Cooney for opening the first round of the tournament. Over the coming days, 4th, 5th and 6th class will follow in their footsteps. The tournament will run on a points system and see winners from the various classes play each other. Best of luck to all involved.
The question is ‘Who will take the trophy home for 2015?!’ Watch this space!
And remember “When you see a good move, look for a better one” (Emanuel Lasker)
