At Karingal Primary School, we encourage students to participate in chess. 

Chess has been persuasively linked with improving children's concentration, problem-solving, critical, original and creative thinking – and even mathematical abilities. It is also said to help with memory storage and how young brains manage information.

Our students love participating in chess competitions throughout the year, and do extremely well.

Mrs Davies is our dedicated staff member that runs our chess club.
