Chess Club

Junior School

This activity takes place during lunch time once a week for boys who are interested in learning the game and further developing their skills. The boys who attend participate in a competition that runs throughout the year.


Senior School

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.
