SJS Through to Next Round of Chess Championships
On Sunday 6th February, six Stamford Junior School children competed in the first round of the English Primary Schools Chess Association (EPSCA) School Teams Chess Tournament at Laxton.
The U11 team played five rounds and qualified for a place in the semi-finals in May at Weston-Super-Mare.
Mrs Helen Britton led the outing and said “The children should be praised for their perseverance and good conduct on the day. They played some long and hard games through to the final round where it was ‘all to play for’ for a place in the semi-finals.”
