Draughts Competition

Each year a draughts competition is organised throughout the school. As with every other activity each child is encouraged to participate, and there are prizes for winners and runners-up in each class as well as trophies for over-all winners in the senior (5th, 6th) and middle (3rd, 4th) class groups.

A very high level of concentration is evident as the children prepare for the competi­tion and the excitement and tension build up as the players progress from round to round. Separate competitions are held for the senior and middle classes, and the chil­dren clearly enjoy this activity.
