Chess Club


Chess is a combination of strategy, style and basic skills. Just as each person is unique, a pupil develops his chess identity over time. Playing regularly with some guidance along the way helps to correctly mould a pupil's game and shape it into a style of his own in his pursuit of excellence.

The Chess Club is open to all chess enthusiasts from Pri.3 to Pri.6. The maximum enrolment is sixty. Priority will be given to existing chess members and pupils from Pri.3 to Pri.6.

Members learn to write chess notations, chess tactics and strategies and get a chance to challenge their peers. Mini-tournaments are held within the club to rank and select the players. Selected players will then represent the school in individual and team championships at the inter-school level. Members are also encouraged to join other tournaments organised by community centres.

Programme / Activities

In a typical CCA session, the Chess coach will provide a 45 min lesson on :

(a) a specific tactic/strategy used in an opening / mid-game
        / end-game;

(b) a specific opening / defence;

(c) chess puzzles to test understanding and facilitate
        application of tactics and strategies; followed by a 45 min
