​Jindalee State School students participated in the Primary Schools Chess Championships held at South Brisbane at the end of May. Thirteen students represented us at the chess competition which involved our students competing in the beginners and novice division against other students from both state and private primary schools from across the Metropolitan region. Chess is based on medieval battle strategies and is a game of skill where the aim is to out-manoeuvre your opponent to capture their king or force their surrender. 

The Jindalee community is extremely proud of the efforts by our students at this event. The sportsmanship they demonstrated was outstanding and the level of collaboration with each other and the team was a credit to them. Our teams competed extremely well and confirmed our school’s high level of commitment and sportsmanship. All teams were very competitive and demonstrated keen strategies and skills in this highly competitive competition. Two of our teams came first in their division which is an outstanding effort against the best competition in Brisbane.

Congratulations to the following team members who represented Jindalee State School:
