Chess Fun Day

The day has finally come, after all of the planning by our Chess Ambassadors Team and our lovely chess teacher Mrs Metge.  I am jumping with excitement, I bet we all are.  As I stand in the hall with all of the other Rosehill Intermediate Chess Players, other schools crowd in.  The other schools Teachers sign in their students with Teagan and Logan.  Oliver and I sign in the Rosehill students.  Harleen and Caleb welcome them with an awesome speech.  Then Mr Tabor and Alex work out which people will verse each other.  After that the day flows by with chess moves, spot prizes and the clicks of the clocks.  The day was a blast and we thank Mrs Owers for letting us use the hall for this terrific event.  We also thank Mrs Metge for making this day possible.

Rosehill Chess Fun Competition

Last Thursday our enthusiastic and respectful students held our Chess Fun Competition in our school hall which was a big success.  We had 13 schools take part.  Even if they were beginners or experts they all had fun.  The students made new friends and some even caught up with old friends.

Thank you to all the students, supporters, visiting schools and our fantastic Rosehill ambassadors for their work and making this such a great day.
