On Sunday 28 February, four teams of Coletines participated in the first round of the National Primary Schools’ Chess Challenge which was held at Westminster Under School.

Three out of our four teams qualified for the next round, which will be held in May. Our U9A team came first in their age group and the U9B team came third. In the U11 competition, the A team came second and the B side came fifth which was, unfortunately, just outside the qualifying bracket. Special mentions go to Christopher Tombolis, Henry Huang, Sameer Shukla, Raphael Granier-Deferre and Daniel Hughes who won all their games and to Joseph Kahn, Teymour Harandi and Martin Hands who played without loss. Well done to all boys taking part.
