Chess Club

​Why chess?
More to the point, why not chess?
Well-documented research shows that chess can:
Raise IQ scores; strengthen problem-solving skills; enhance memory and concentration; improve reading and mathematical skills; foster critical, creative and original thinking; teach logical and
sequential thinking; and demonstrate the importance of decision-making and consequences.
 
At Coomera Springs, we hold our Chess Club every Thursday at first break in the library. Miss Marriott and Miss Hargrave facilitate this experience, teaching the skills needed for chess competitions. Each term, committed and capable students are selected to attend an interschool chess competition. Our chess club currently has a parent helper, but is looking for many more to assist our chess club students. We are currently prepping for our next competition which will take place near the end of this term.
