Sacred Heart students played amazingly winning almost all of their games against their opponents from St Thomas the Apostle. Our star player on the day was Justin La Rosa 13FM who won all of his games. Sacred Heart won both the lower school and 6th form tournament by a great margin. We hope to host another tournament again soon against St Thomas the Apostle School and other schools in the local area.


Chess Club is now one of the largest extra-curricular clubs in school with over 50 members. We hope that with the continued support of Mr Amin and our 6th form members, we will be able to continue to grow this club and participate in more events outside of school.

I am so proud of every member of our chess club. Whether they competed in the tournament, supported our teams to practice or came to spectate on the day, they are a wonderful group of students who make chess club a great place to be.
