Chess Club

Playing chess develops skills such as problem solving, forward planning, lateral, logical and sequential thinking as well as memory, visualisation and verbalisation.  These cognitive skills are developed in a highly engaging environment. Chess also provides an opportunity for all children to develop self-confidence, decision making skills, resilience and a sense of responsibility. 

At Glenden State School, Chess Club is run by Chess Kids and is offered to students as an extra-curricular activity.  Classes are 30 minutes long and are held over lunch time, with opportunities for students to participate in Interschool Chess Championships and tournaments.  

All games are monitored and supervised by staff who provides individual feedback to students.
