In the search for the BSB Chess Grandmaster, the Secondary school recently organised a chess tournament. Students exhibited their strategic prowess on the checkered battlefield, skillfully maneuvering their pieces with precision and wit. The journey began at the Global Campus Chess Club CCA in Term 1, where students honed their skills and participated in the Nord Anglia global chess competition, eventually leading to the BSB chess tournament.

With an open invitation to all secondary students, elimination rounds trimmed the number of participants to six who competed in the semi-final rounds. The final two students, Alexander Hong and Juwon Seo competed on 14th March.
