The chess club is one of the fastest growing extramural activities in Jeffreys Bay Primary.
Chess has a huge impact on the development of the brain, in stimulating the neuron pathways, and helping in improving concentration and self-discipline.
The first year of school chess, saw 3 of our players being selected for the Eastern Province Team, as well as 2 selected as reserves. The second year of Provincial competition saw this increase to 7 players being selected, and this year a staggering 16 players were selected to represent Eastern Province.
Despite no league being established, our team still managed to win the B-section for 2 years running.
