The SIS Chess Competition was held on Tuesday 11 September at Flinders Community Christian College (Tyabb Campus). Berwick Grammar sent a team comprising of Kurt Caddy, Jake Giddens, Achila Perera, Brian Lam, Rhegan McEwen, Victor Cai, Januk Gamage and Jeremy Mohanraj.
Our Chess Captain, Kurt Caddy, did a fantastic job of rallying and supporting our team in the lead up to the event. He was responsible for planning and overseeing lunchtime and after school meetings every Monday, and has impressed with the range of teaching strategies he has used to sharpen the skills of our chess players.
Berwick Grammar came ninth in the event, with notably strong performances from Victor Cai, Brian Lam and Kurt Caddy.
We look forward to seeing the continued progress of our Chess Club as they further develop their skills. There will be another competition held internally in Term 4 with fantastic prizes on offer to the winning participants.
Any student who is thinking of getting involved is encouraged to contact Mr Pieper or Kurt Caddy, as they are always welcome to join the fun.
Mr Sean Pieper
