The Bialik Primary School Chess Team participated in the State Semi Finals tournament held at St Bridget’s Primary School in North Balwyn on Wednesday the 23 October.
Bialik was one of 14 schools that played and this included over 90 students.
We narrowly missed going to the State Finals by finishing 6th overall, when the criteria for getting into the Finals was to finish top 5. The team was led by Ilay G, who scored 5 victories from 7 rounds.
As always, the competition was at a very high level and our school performed very well.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the tournaments this year and especially to Caity Faiman and Rick McLeod, who offered much support in preparation for the tournaments.
We look forward to another great year in chess in 2020.
Ray Glassoff – Primary School Chess Coordinator
