Franner Tackle the National Checkmate Finals

After taking on the might of St. Mary’s, St. Catherine’s & Central Model School in the group stages of the National Checkmate chess competition, our boys qualified for the national finals in Limerick on Friday. This was only our second qualification in our school’s history.

After 6 gruelling rounds the boys had clocked up a respectable 9 points against very stiff competition from across the country. The boys’ results earned them a proud 8th place out of 12. 

Well done to Daniel, Karl, Clayton and Hafizi on making more chess history for yourselves and your school and we are all extremely proud of the four of you.
