On the 25th of January, 6 Alton Park children attended a Junior Chess Tournament held at Tendring Technical College.
Dillon, Kelan, Caeden, Joshua, Daniel and Thomas played against some stiff opposition. Despite it being the first time the school has participated in such an event, all the children won at least one game out of the 6 they played and some of them did considerably better, with the result that the team finished 6th out of 8 teams. It was a very enjoyable day and all those that attended were a credit to the school – well done boys.
Chess club will continue to run on Wednesday lunch time, so if you would like to come along please speak to Mr Crees or Mr Bertram.
There is another Tournament in June, which gives us plenty of time to strengthen our game, and maybe even take a few girls with us next time!
