At Weeden Heights Primary School we offer a weekly Chess Club as an extra-curricula activity for students on Friday mornings. Experienced tutors from ‘Chess Ideas’ are our coaches with students from Prep to Grade Six participating in this program.
Chess lessons provide our students with great opportunities to gain skills that can be applied in many learning situations. The students engage in a variety of activities whilst having an enjoyable time interacting with their peers and learning to play chess.
Students who are part of Chess Club are able to participate in Inter-School Chess Competitions. Weeden Heights annually host an Inter-School tournament with many schools participating. Several of our students have been extremely successful in these competitions and have qualified to compete in State Level Chess Tournaments.
