We are proud to announce that we have just received another proof of the many outstanding talents and excellent skills of our pupils. Our Primary School Chess Team has won First Prize in the first ever Pancyprian School Chess Championship.
The tournament was organised by the Cyprus Chess Federation, in cooperation with the Ammochostos Chess Club and Xenion Private School in Paralimni, which also hosted the event.
The following pupils represented our school:
- Aleksandr Lomadze, 1E
- Georgii Chernenko, 2R
- Matfey Lavrishchev, 2R
- Alexander Agroskin, 6E
- Kirill Osrtoumov, 6E
They had to play about seven matches each and, as a team, they came out on top! This is even more remarkable, as three of our five participants are younger than 8 years and they had to play against 12-year-old pupils from other schools. We thank and congratulate our young chess champions and their coach, Mr Arkadios Koulaxidis, for their wonderful achievement!
