Congratulations to our amazing 2018 Chess Wizards who competed in Auckland on Sunday at De La Salle College. This team of boys have improved so much over this year with their skills in strategic thinking. National Chess is a very high level and our team ended up being rated 12th out of 26 teams which is a significant achievement for a young team. Each team member contributed to this success. We have a number of Year 5’s competing this year which bodes well for next year’s competitions.

Special thanks go to the team’s very supportive parents, who have played endless games of chess themselves this year, provided encouragement and transport to tournaments. Our students made us all very proud, they represented us so well, showing our vision; Kia Maia - confident can do attitude, Kia Manaaki - showing respect for others and Kia Kotahi - working as a team, supporting each other. Well done everyone.
