On the 17th march 2010, our school chess team played Kyson Primary from Woodbridge. The chess tutor for Kyson was Mr Hawes, former teacher at Sir Robert Hitchams.
Our chess team consisted of 12 players, including the reigning champion of last year’s year 5-6 chess tournament – Josh Briggs. Also in the team were Jake Briffa, Lucy Tappenden, Hattie Hopkins, Freddy Legg, Oscar Wood, Theo Bimson, David Orrell, George Johnson, George Harold, Ewan Mclean and Billy Caiger.
The match started out with some early victories for SRH, but several games were concluded with stalemates as time went on. In the end, 1 game was lost, as few drew, but most of us won our games. The final score was 8 ½ - 3 ½ to Sir Robert Hitchams.
