This year was a highly successful year for the chess club in Scoil Assaim. In the region of 200 students took part in the competitions which began in November and finished before the Easter break. Second class students received beginner lessons on the basics from older students and a big thank you to all the students from Mr.Byrne's 6th class who gave up a huge number of lunch breaks to help set up boards and monitor games during their lunch breaks. Trophies and medals were handed out to winners in both expert and beginner competitions! 

 

A well done to all who participated and we hope to see such a huge number take part next year again.
