Over 6 weeks in August and September twelve year 9 and 10 students have participated in the Logan Park Junior Chess Championships. It was run as a round-robin competition with everyone needing to play 2 games each week.
Participating in the tournament was Xing Zhang, Odin Jacobs, Jasper Seddon, Alex Cameron, Ben Connolly, Ella Molteno, Viviane Dalphin, Paxton Hall, Adair Clark, Elia Hayashishita, Harry Major and Leevi Hanson.
The eventual winner, of this inaugural event was Harry Major with Paxton Hall a close second. These boys played each other in the final round with Paxton needing just a draw and Harry needing a win. The game was neck and neck throughout but Harry eventually won the close match.
