Congratulations to all the schools that took part.

It was a close competition with Sacred Heart winning by one game against Harris Boys East Dulwich. I am incredibly proud of our team and chess club. They had some very tough competition. We went in to the last round of the tournament needing 4 wins out of 7 against our final school to win the tournament.

Not only did we win, but the immense support from the other chess club members, whether it was clearing up exam tables, setting up for the tournament or just being there as a support during the tournament was incredible.
Two ex-pupils (chess members) also returned for the tournament to support our team.


Our team members were:

John Colonia Ramirez - 7P
Dyllon Ramos - 10M
Justin Lloyd Casilagan - 10M
Finas Temnewo - 11M
Ronald Gil Monsalve - 12 JC
Neithan Chua - 13FM
