17 Wentworth Primary students took part in the annual Hibiscus Coast Chess Tournament held in Silverdale last week. Students ranged from Years 2 to 6 with varying degrees of chess experience but all were keen players. There were almost 100 competitors from six different schools and each participant played seven matches. We witnessed many tough battles across the boards and, whatever the outcome of each game, the sporting behaviour displayed was wonderful.
Our top player was Vincent Liu (Year 6), who finished in 7th position overall but we had many others playing matches on the top 5 tables during the tournament. Wentworth School ended the tournament just beaten into 4th place. Congratulations to all our chess champions!
