Chess Registration

chess piecesIs your son/daughter is interested in the Sydney Academy of Chess classes provided via the WPS P&C Chess Club?

Classes are FUN and involve combinations of formal, but interactive, lessons, puzzles and recorded / tournament games with other students, where personal feedback is provided. Parents / carers are expected to assist in supervising at least one class a semester. This does NOT involve teaching, just acting as support for the professional coaches who are there.

We cater from the total beginner to the state-grade champion!

Classes are held on Tuesday AM (only), 7:45 to 8:45am.

Chess Club is held at the series of demountable class rooms at the Post Office end of the school (western end). The Advanced classroom is the far right, facing the Post Office and then to the left, in order; Intermediate, Junior, Novice & Kindy. For all enquiries re attending Chess classes please email

Classes will run from Week Two of term 1, and Week One for other terms.  There is no class on staff development days. ie:

T1 2017: 7th February – 2nd April
T2 2017: 2nd May – 27th June
T3 2017: 18th July – 19th September
T4 2017: 10th October – 12th Decemberr

The cost is $90 for a term, $170 for a semester, $250 for three terms or $330 for a year. Payment is due the first class that your child attends and there are no refunds for students who miss classes.
