Students at BCHS entered their first inter-school chess competition last week.
The team consisted of Omar, Uzair, Rustam, Arslan, and Mustafa; and were coached by Mr Gaston. The schools taking part in the competition were Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, Audley Juniors, St Mary Langham, St Augustine’s Roman Catholic High School, and a team made up of board 6 of every team, named the Fantastic Five.
Team BCHS competed in a grueling and challenging afternoon, playing four, thirty-minute games against some very strong opponents. Team BCHS eventually finished in second place, missing out on first place by just half a point. Congratulations!
