Pimpama Kings of Chess


On Monday, 76 Students from Prep to Year 6 represented King’s Pimpama in the Gold Coast North Inter-School Chess Championships. Unfortunately, due to COVID, King’s were the only school competing!. However, it still made for a very exciting day!  Students were put into divisions based on skill level: Grades A, B, C, D and E. It was great to see everyone playing chess again!

Overall, the day was a great success; students were well behaved and Mr Cooke was very proud of everyone’s efforts.
