Chess Club

The St Virgil’s College Chess Club is offered to all senior school students and all ability levels, from beginner to advanced.  The Chess Club provides the opportunity for students to develop and practice new skills, such as strategy, critical thinking and fair play.  Our Club meetings are informal allowing students to further develop their social skills while forming new friendships.  


Chess Club members are invited to represent the College at various regional and State-wide interschool tournaments.  Since 2018, the College has consistently qualified for the Tasmanian State Interschool Chess Competition, and in 2020 qualified for the Australian National Interschool Chess Competition.

Chess Club is held every Thursday during the lunch break.  We are always open to new members.  Please direct all enquiries to Mrs Jacquelyn Turner - jturner@stvirgils.tas.edu.au
