​​Junior Chess and Senior Chess classes

​At Broadbeach State School we conduct an extra-curricular Chess program.

Classes are tutored by either Toby Davies or Michael Goodman with a teacher aide supervising. Classes are offered on the above days and times.

Chess is one of the most interesting sports because it never repeats itself, there are never two equal matches, and it never bores you. You can even play it online! Playing chess is fun, and teaches planning and foresight.

Chess has the following positive benefits:

  • Increases problem-solving skills
  • Improves spatial skills
  • Improves memory
  • Exercises both sides of the brain
  • Increases creativity
  • Improves concentration
