It was a very successful evening of Chess for our younger students on Tuesday 26 May when 25 very keen Ormiston College students attended the chess competition at Moreton Bay Boys' College. Both staff and students entered the competition with high hopes as our school had one of the largest numbers of entrants; and we were not disappointed with the outcome. OC placed first overall in the Beginners Division with William Britton achieving third place and Ada Sun receiving second place. We also won the Novice Division with Nelson Lin placing second. We just missed out on a place on the podium in the Senior Division, coming fourth.
The students were great ambassadors for the College. They conducted themselves beautifully and their interaction with members of the opposing teams was as impressive as always. Congratulations to all our Chess Team members.
