Chess Championship

John Major —

Logan Park recently competed in the Otago Secondary Schools Teams Chess Championship. 

Our A Team consisting of Daniel Wallace, Emmanuel Wong, Ruairi Griffen and Grant McNaughton gained 3rd place out of the 8 teams. Our B Team of Matai Bowen, Hamish McKinlay, Lindsay Dowden-Mackay and Finn McKinlay came a credible 6th.

Every Friday lunchtime up to 20 students play Chess in Room 51 often competing against the clock and for positions on the Logan Park Chess Ladder.  And every Wednesday lunchtime, juniors  Matai Bowen and Hannah Colson go to North East Valley School to run their Chess Club.
