Chess develops logical and analytical thinking and is a great mental exercise. Chess promotes social interaction and can be competitive, as well.
One of the benefits of Chess is playing against a person with good manners who become your friend, regardless of the result of the game.
I am very happy that more and more students in our school starts playing Chess and become proficient with the rules of this beautiful game. Students are encouraged to join us any Friday lunchtime in the room IB 202 and play a game or two.
