Chess Club

Chess Club comprises unique, focused and intelligent young individuals who demonstrate a deep appreciation for the game of chess. A well-knitted family with enthusiastic players, our members immerse themselves in regular practices of both International Chess and Chinese Chess to improve their skills. Through chess, all members will understand and value the importance of perseverance and resilience.

Chess Club’s objective is to develop students’ skills in chess and train their cognitive thinking through numerous activities such as participation in different types of chess competitions and organising Values in Action events for external organisations. Playing and studying chess improves critical thinking, intuition, organisation, concentration, patience, and decision-making skills.

The Chess Club takes part in various competitions around the year, including Char Yong Cup, National School Team, Fo Guan Cup and National Individual competitions. Through participation in these competitions, our members have ample opportunities to pit their skills against other like-minded chess players across the country, attaining good standing at Zone / National level.

VIA Activities @ Star Learners (Woodlands Circle)

A chess coaching session was organised at My Star Learner on the 19 July for a group of 39 kindergartners, with the aim of exposing them to chess. The coaching session was a success, with both YTzens and the young learners enjoying themselves thoroughly. It was a memorable day, where Chess club members have the opportunity to display their resilience in the face of challenges and at the same time contribute back to the learning of future generations
