St Mary’s College Junior School


Chess is one of the most popular after-school activities in our school and we are lucky to have the services of Irish chess champion Alexander Babourin and his team who run after-school chess classes for boys from Form 2 to Form 6 each week.

During chess class, the boys become familiar with the rules of the game and are encouraged to use their imagination. Creativity, logical thinking and
strategic planning skills really start to develop. Chess, like other sports, teaches us about life too: how to get up after hardships, how to win and lose, how to be a fair sportsman who is respected by their opponents, how to follow through with an idea and make it into a plan!

Classes take place on Wednesday afternoons from 2.45pm - 3.45pm.
