Last year was very successful in chess at Scoil Mhuire Lourdes. We hope that this year will be as thriving as the last!
At present pupils from 3rd-6th class are playing chess in Scoil Mhuire Lourdes. Mr. Paul Dowdall teaches the boys how to play chess in 3rd class during the school day. An afternoon chess club runs every Monday from 2.40-3.40pm for the pupils in 4th-6th class. The boys thoroughly enjoy competing against each other and we look forward to attending some chess tournaments with pupils from other schools in the near future.
