NEWS & EVENTS
Our highly anticipated chess tournaments are held three times per year. The first tournament of the semester is held in November, followed by another tournament in April and then in July just before school starts. Awards are given to every participant in the tournament. Tournaments are a great way to allow our students to fellowship with students from other school and test their skills.
Trophy days are held at the end of each semester (usually the week before school officially ends for the semester). Trophies are a great self-esteem booster and very motivational for children and adults. It's nothing like having the feeling of accomplishment and triumph for a good clean VICTORY!
Our trophy days are designed to motivate and reward our students for their hard work and great study habits. Trophies are awarded according to points accumulated during our classes. The higher the points, the bigger the trophy so work hard, practice, study and get those points!
