On Thursday Abbey school’s chess team defended their title at Okehampton Primary school, against 5 other chess teams. Our pupils all played with confidence and finesse, with some early rapid victories. The team demonstrated Abbey school’s values and were a credit to the school. We successfully defended our team title to become the overall winners. Oliver, Jaden and Max W all played brilliantly, contributing to the team’s success. Also in the team with their own individual results are as follows;
Max J – Best Year 3 (Joint second overall)
Xi Lang – Best Year 4 (Joint second overall)
Luke – Best Year 5 (Overall individual winner)
Seb W (Capt) – Best Year 6 (Joint second overall)
Well done to all and thank you to Mr Onions for coaching and organising the team and Mrs Batty and Mrs Temple for all their help with this event.
