The Prince of Peace Lutheran College Junior Campus Chess Club enjoyed a successful day out at the recent Gardiner Chess North Brisbane Primary School Competition with some notable wins and performances.

Chess Club Coordinator Mr Andrew Russell said that Prince of Peace had its largest-ever representation at the event.

“With 26 players out to do their best for the College, we were thrilled to achieve team placings of first and second in D Division and third in B division.” Mr Russell said.

“Individually, Ryan Eaglestone placed second in D division, and additional Ribbons of Merit went to Emily Muller, Eric Rollason, Austin Haines and Jay England.”

“While I am very proud of our results, I am even more proud of our team’s great approach and attitude. Students were a credit to themselves, their families and the College through their behaviour and attitude, enjoying their victories and accepting losses in good spirit,” noted Mr Russell.
