South Coast Interschool Chess Tournament

On Wednesday 10th June, Caningeraba were very excited to host the South Coast region interschool chess tournament.  Three hundred and eighty competitors from various private and public schools in our region slogged it out over 8 rounds.  
The day was a huge success. The following 24 Caningeraba students entered the tournament: Jackson M, Oliver W, Shay S, Kyron C, Thomas R, Judd M, Rohan S, Noah T, Jack B, Jakobi R, Liam C, Jackson M-E, Connor K, Tresna J, Ty K, Florinne K, Kriszti B, Luke B, Sean F, Joshua P, Ethan M, Jordan B, Liam K, Caleb K, Oscar C and Tyler T. Everyone played wonderfully!  We were very proud of all of our competitors.  Ethan, Jackson and Jordan all received merit ribbons. Well done!
We ran a small canteen on the day. The food was prepared and served by our student council representatives. They were so professional and courteous with their customer service.  A huge thank you to the following students: Daniel N, Jamie L, Rachel S, Eden G, Tom W, Sage K, Destan K, Amber G, Michael D, Anthony R, Tahj H and Brooke O.
For the past year and a half, Mr Shannon Thomas has been donating his time and energy to coach our students.  Thank you Mr Thomas, you have done a wonderful job.
Thank you to Lisa Kelly whose organisation in the canteen and general help with the day were invaluable.
We look forward to sharing our other successes with you soon.
