Chess | Gippsland Grammar


Our chess program brings together students of all ages who enjoy a recreational activity that compels them to problem-solve, persevere and demonstrate sportsmanship in the face of challenging encounters where no two games are ever alike. The cognitive benefits of chess are considerable: students learn to plan and think analytically and independently, observe, concentrate, develop patience and consider multiple, concurrent possibilities. At Gippsland Grammar, students can play chess recreationally in the ISC and represent the School in the cultural competition enjoyed by the network of Schools against whom we compete.
