I recently attended my first Interschool Chess tournament.  It was fantastic!  I so enjoyed watching 90 enthusiastic primary children from 4 different schools,  heads down, competing against each other, having a fabulous time.

Amongst them was Suzanna from Blackburn Primary School who loves playing chess and particularly taking part in school tournaments.

She told me that she didn’t attend Chess Club at school because “it is very expensive so I play with my older brother at home.  He is a great brother and teaches me heaps about chess”.

Hearing her speak so fondly of her brother and enjoying playing chess with him made me feel so good.

When I looked up Blackburn Primary I noticed that they are entering 10 tournaments before the end of Term 3 … how keen are they!

Interschool Chess is so inspiring.
