Chess Tournament 2014
Delany Chess Team 2014


On Wednesday 27th August, 11 students from Delany College attended a chess tournament at Holroyd High School.  With six other schools on board, competition was tough, but students had an enjoyable time learning and competing.

The Delany students showed impressive dedication and focus competing in their divisions. Well done to Stephen Manson who achieved second place in the First Division. 
The students' highlights:

"Today was my first time in a chess tournament.  I came in with not much experience, so my highlight was winning my first game." Paul

"My highlight was winning matches, keeping me motivated and making the tournament really enjoyable". Johnny

"Although I lost the first few games, after recess, I regained my focus and won the next four!" Anthony

"I really liked meeting new people from different schools while playing chess"  Aiden

"Winning my first game!" Adam

"I liked how during the day we made friends and learnt new things about chess."

"Playing against better players makes me stronger"

"Being able to force a stalemate when I was about to lose was my highlight." Lochlan

"Enjoyed catching up with old friends and learning new moves." Alex Stephen
