Congratulations once again to our amazing chess club students. They participated in the New Zealand Chess Federation East Auckland regional competition on the 1st of August at Point View School and all participants competed well.
The following students participated: Wesley Lau, Aaron Santoso, Emily Chan, Jospeh Chen, William Chen, Austin Yao, Geoffrey Cai, Kinson Tse.
The students were in two teams. Team 1 consisting of Wesley, Aaron, Emily and Joseph did so well that they came third place, receiving bronze medals, and qualified our school for the NZCF Nationals to be held in Palmerston North later on in the term. These students have also qualified for the Chess Power Nationals to be held in Christchurch on the 18th of October.
Emily did incredibly well winning all six of her games, which is not an easy thing to do and she will receive an individual medal for her efforts.
The results from the day are as follows:
Wesley  – 4 points
Aaron  – 4 points
Emily  – 6 points
Joseph  – 5 points
William  – 5 points
Austin  – 4 points
Geoffrey  – 2 1/2 points
Kinson  – 2 1/2 points
Thanks to Mr Damian Cooper who, once again, gave up his day to support the students and continues to coach the club each Monday – we are very appreciative of his help!
