Chess Tournament at St Georges Hall

This is the second time we’ve taken part in the Chess in Schools and Communities Tournament held at the glorious St Georges Hall in Liverpool.

Rolling up your sleeves and getting down to work – under the gaze of Kitty Wilkinson – the only statue of a woman in St Georges main Hall.
Chess 1
Writing up the scores – at this point Netherton Moss was in third place!
Chess 2
Over four hundred children competing – and it is silent!

Chess 4

This year we took three teams, five players each from Year 3, 4 and 6. They were Year 3: Lucas Kellow Webb, James Metcalf, Kaedyn Hughes, Abbie Miller and Kayden Dobbs. From Year 4 we took Aidan Mellor, Sam Walsh, Paul Lavery, Alfie Parr and Alanna Hankinson. And from the year 6 our players were Robert Paterson, Scarlet Howard,  Alex Griffith, Luke Mahr and Hannah Hodgson. It’s tough! Five rounds against different schools and a lot of quiet concentration.

Everyone played well, winning some, losing some and the occasional draw, but every child did their best and did our school credit. Well Done.
