The Bialik Primary School Chess team participated in a Chess Federation Accredited Primary Interschool Tournament, held at Burwood East Primary School. About 11 schools and close to 100 very skilled students competed in this well-run tournament. Bialik did well finishing sixth overall and qualifying for the forthcoming semi finals.
Our top scorers for the day were Ilay G, and Shakked F, who finished with 5 and 4.5 victories out of 7 rounds.
Each of our 10 participants were able to get at least 3 victories. This is a great result considering the high level of competition and the fact that our team had a Year 3 player and four Year 4 players. As always, our school showed excellent sportsmanship and displayed very positive attitudes to teammates and opponents and made the school very proud.
