Catholic Secondary Schools Chess Tournament

Last week St Edmund Campion hosted the Catholic Secondary Schools Chess Tournament. We had three schools represented: St Edmund Campion, Bishop Walsh and St Thomas Aquinas.

The St Edmund Campion 'Dream Team' included Amarni Campbell (Y10), Ethan Kendall (Y8), Matewos Misghina (Y8), Alan Sajan (Y8) and Sean Kitaka (Y8)

The competition was very competitive, with pupils playing to be the overall school winners and the individual competition winner. Congratulations to Bishop Walsh who were the winners of both the team and individual elements. The event had a really friendly atmosphere despite the competitive edge.

Matches took place in silence but there was lots of friendly discussion in the breaks between matches. Pupils from all of the schools enjoyed mixing and sharing their chess knowledge as well as developing their understanding and learning throughout the afternoon.

Well done to all involved!
