Chess

Chess at St Benedict's College

CHESS

The chess team in the College is captained by a matric student voted to perform the task of communicating to the boys, tutoring and providing lessons, organising teams and announcing results and fixtures.

The Chess team consists of boys throughout the College. The boys take part in friendly matches as well as league fixtures organised by participating IEB schools. St Benedict’s takes part in the annual inter-Catholic chess tournament hosted by our sister school, Assumption Convent. St Benedict’s has proudly brought home the trophy for the last three years. Also in the third term, our Chess Captain organises an inter-house Chess league that finds boys from our four houses competing each other to bring home the inter-house Chess trophy. 
Chess is a relaxing way to instil critical thinking; strategic planning and thought. The boys spend many hours making full use of the three large, outside chessboards found around the school. Chess practises are held in Mr Brouard’s classroom (G16) twice a week.
