Chess practice is on Wednesdays after school. We make use of computers during practice sessions. There is a Chessmaster tutorial programme available for beginners. More experience players can play ranked games against their fellow chess players. We participate in the George schools competitions every year where successful players participate in the SWD trials. If chosen for the SWD team they will participate in the South African Chess competitions in December. This year we are fortunate to have 5 learners representing SWD at the end of the year. We also participate as a team in several other competitions. The under 16 team will be participating in the Top -Schools competition in the third term. The Inter house Chess and York Chess Champion competitions are held every year during term 3. See you there!
