Ficheall – Chess Champions

Comhghairdeas mór le muintir fichille na scoile! Chess is a hugely hit in our school. We have a Chess Club that meets every Wednesday evening after school. We also have ‘Buddy Chess’, where our Rang 6 pupils teach the skills of the game to Rang 1 & 2. Always such a lovely session to supervise!

We hosted this year’s Féile Fichille in the Gaelscoil with teams from schools in town and further afield competing. It really was a great occasion and all pupils who participated did themselves proud. At the end of the day one of our three teams came out on top and qualified for the Regional Finals of the Féile.

They travelled to Abbeyleix to represent the school and after a long day show casing their skill and strategy, they emerged victorious, scooping first place once again! Buíóchas mór to Múinteoir Eibhlín & Múinteoir Elaine who organise and host the Chess Club in our school. And ‘Well done’ to our super chess gurus!
