Pupils from first class up will receive chess and draughts classes once a week with our School Chess Master, Gordon Mewis.

Last year our in-school chess tournament was won by Liam O’Riordan and we had three pupils on the ChessForAll Roll of Honour. Well done to all.

Pupils attend chess classes in the local chess Club- The Knight’s of St. James- as well. This has improved their skills. The classes are on every Monday night in St. James’s Hall at 7:00pm.

Our chess team travelled to Killavullen N.S. for the Local Schools Chess  Competition and won second place overall.
