From the Chess Master
A few reminders this week. Firstly, if your son would like to take part in the Delancey Chess Challenge next term he will need to log into lichess.org and then do a search for "Claires Court Chess Club", and make a request to join. I will then accept his request. Please email me his login name so I can confirm who he is!
I need to have entries for the House Chess competition by Friday of next week so I can arrange the tournament. Please could your son tell his Form Teacher if he wants to play?
Lessons with Mr Tuck - Mr Tuck should be rejoining us in the flesh next term. Please contact me if your son would like to receive private tuition (rih@clairescourt.net).
