EHS Chess Competition

Students playing chess

Friday Lunch at the library hosted the regular EHS chess competition, with lots of friendly rivalry to see who will "check mate' their opponent.

There are no real requirements to play with the Friday competition, although it is helpful if you know the moves. 

The better players are happy to assist a beginner so it would be great to see some more people join in to this fun activity at Friday Lunch. 

All Welcome.
