Meeting over the lunch period on one or two Tuesdays a month, students will learn skills and strategies of the game of chess by studying under an experienced teacher and playing together. Each semester concludes with a chess tournament.
NOTE: Chess Club meets at the same time and on the same days as Form 2 (upper elementary) Game Club; students in grades 4 through 6 must choose either one or the other, not both. (In contrast, the teen Game Club for Forms 3 & 4 meets at different day and time, so students in 7th grade and up can enroll in both Chess Club and Game Club if desired and space allows.)
Chess Club doesn’t require any outside materials to be purchased by families except the student’s lunch.
The following classroom supplies and learning resources will be provided by BHSC:
- Chess boards and pieces
- Chess clocks
