House Chess Competition

During the last few weeks, students from Year 7 to 10 have represented their tutor groups, and their houses, as they faced each other during the House chess tournament.

Students played games of ‘Blitz’ chess, a type of chess in which a fixed time control is set.  Each player was given only 7 minutes to make all their moves, increasing the challenge and intensity of the game.

It was checkmate for Lowry and Pankhurst in our first House chess grand final for Year 7 and 8, with Turing being crowned the King!
