Chess : Star College Top School in Durban

The Star College Under 15 Chess Team has, since the beginning of 2014, been working its way rapidly up the ladder of success. Each of our players is passionate about chess and they play the game whenever they get a chance – even in between their demanding academic curriculum. The boys, however, do claim that playing chess helps them with logical thinking, planning skills, problem solving and anticipating consequences.

They recently won the Durban North West Championships against Westville Boys High Shool and now they have won the Durban Top Schools Championships.  This was an outstanding achievement especially because the same Star College Chess Team won in this tournament in 2013. So, for the second consecutive year our Chess Team has won the Durban and Districts Top Schools Floating Trophy. This trophy is presented annually by the KZN Department of sport and Recreation.  Mr Wandile Ndlovu, KZN Dept of Sport and Recreation awarded the trophy to the school at a special assembly on the 15 October.

 

The Star College Team now faces the daunting task of taking on the Top Schools in the province of KZN!
