On Thursday 20 September, I had the privilege of taking nine of our Year 5 chess stars to the Nepean Primary Chess Tournament hosted by the NSW Junior Chess League, held at Emu Plains Public School.
In teams of three, each of our boys competed in six matches against players from both public and private schools within the area. Competition was tough with a number of games taking a long time to realise a winner.
In the end, our PCS team finished outside of the top three; however, I was very proud of the effort and attitude demonstrated by everyone within the team. For most of our players, it was the first time that they had competed in a chess tournament.
