Identifying and tackling challenging projects is one of the key objectives of our Enigma program for students from Years 7 to 9.

One of the projects chosen by the boys this term is to redesign the game of Chess.

“The program gives me an opportunity to independently create a project which we can develop and produce together as a group. It can be whatever we choose it to be, which enables freedom of choice. No set parameters on any design,” explains Year 7 student, Edward Hadi.

“Chess is a popular game that is in fact played three times as much as soccer! We all enjoy Chess so have decided to base our project on it,” says Year 7 student, Jeremiah Wang.

“Essentially, our project is to design and make a new Chess board and new pieces to ‘create’ a new version of this well-known game.”

The Enigma program is one of the many ways that Christ Church extends its academically able students by developing boys’ abilities to be flexible, take intellectual risks and show curiosity.
