The top of the leader board in our annual in-school chess competition headed off as a senior team and a junior team to represent their school at the annual interschool chess competition in St. Joseph’s Primary school in Gorey on Wednesday 13th February. And it must be said their ‘chess prowess’ showed. After playing many games, the Junior team secured first place to bring home gold medals. The senior team were also making ‘the right moves’ only to be pipped at the post by half a point for first place by the host school themselves. Congratulations to both teams and many thanks to the parents who drove them to this much loved event. Chess is still alive and kicking in Piercestown N.S. Many thanks to Ms. Hearne who keeps our tradition alive year after year.
