Chess Coaching

We are looking forward to the opportunity to offer Chess Lessons throughout Term 4, with Phil from 'Checkmate' Chess Coaching. 

Each week different lessons are taught such as tactics, strategies, special moves, traps and openings that will help players improve their game. Students are then paired up in a fun tournament playoff where they can display their new skills and knowledge. All skill levels are catered for!

Chess has many educational benefits such as improving concentration, problem solving, pattern recognition, analytical skills, memory recall and self-esteem. Most importantly, it’s about having fun learning how to play the world’s most popular mind sport!


Chess Lessons will commence on Friday, 27th October (Week 3) and run for seven consecutive Fridays. Payment is also due on this day.

Please refer to the attached document if interested in making a booking for your child. The lessons will run on Friday lunchtimes throughout Term 4 in the Middle School Library.

For more information, please contact Phil Hooton on 0421 901 530 or
