Eight of our boys from Years 4, 5 and 6 took part in the recent IPSHA Chess Tournament hosted by St Mark’s Anglican School, taking out third place after a competitive battle. Regent College successfully claimed first place, followed by St Andrew’s with second.

The chess tournament is an annual event organised by IPSHA, the Independent Primary School Heads of Australia.

PP to Year 2 Teaching and Learning Co-ordinator Ms Rachael Durston said “The boys did a wonderful job of representing Christ Church and showed great application and sportsmanship on the day. As with previous years, the boys chosen to represent Christ Church derived great enjoyment from a whole day out playing chess against other IPSHA schools.”

Participating schools this year included All Saints, Guildford, Perth College, St Mark’s, Hale, Kingsway, Wesley, St Andrew’s, Heritage, St Mary’s, Quintillion, Helena, Carmel, Regent and St James.

Chess Club is offered to boys from Years 3 to 6 as part of the School’s co-curricular activities, taking place each Monday after school in PPRD.
