King's Crowned Primary Chess Champions

Reedy Creek

Earlier this term, 72 students represented King’s Christian College in the Gold Coast Hinterland Inter-School Chess Championships. With 160 students converging on Clover Hill State School from across the Gold Coast, the stage was set for some intense battles. Participants played seven rounds of chess in their skill division (A, B or C) and King’s performance was one for the history books, claiming first place in all three divisions! This was an outstanding achievement, as our students successfully defeated some very strong rivals from Somerset College and All Saints. Mr Cooke and the College were very impressed and proud of your hard work and achievements. Congratulations students!
