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.


Chess is great way for students to learn:

  • Turn taking
  • Problem solving
  • Strategies
  • Directional movements
  • Maths
  • Resilience
Chess Club as one of our lunchtime clubs and we are hosting a Chess tournament later this year! Mrs Davies is our dedicated staff member that runs our chess club. Please enjoy our chess gallery of different chess tournaments.
