Winter Chess Tournament 2019

Posted on: December 10th 2019College Events


The Chess Club has been a part of extra-curricular activities at De Lisle for many years. Chess has many educational benefits, giving young people skills such as focus, discipline, concentration and strategic thinking.

Thirty keen students from years 7 to 11 participated in the annual inter-house chess tournament which took place every Tuesday during Prep Time in the Library. Those competing had the opportunity to win prizes along the way and points for their houses with the ultimate winner receiving a trophy.

Congratulations to all who entered and to this year's winner, Nathaniel, and runner up Charlie.

The final results are as follows:

1st  -  Nathaniel 9F2
