Strategic moves have come up trumps for the Helensville Primary School Chess Club. In just their first year of both learn- ing the game and competing, the club qualified for the 2010 National Chess Competition. Among 26 schools, the finals were held at Pigeon Mountain Primary in Howick. The Helensville team con- sisted of Kumaa Jayachanthiian, Marianne Birt, Truman Smith, Alex Holman, Michael McKenzie, Liam Macdonald and Brayden Morris. The students gained fourth place for the primary schools' division, against the top placing schools who have been actively playing for three years. These kids put their heart and soul into these battles of the mind and I am very proud of every one of them,'' says coach Paul Macdonald of Helensville. It was quite an experience for the kids. Every game was tough because these were the best players across the country for their age.'' He says there were character- building moments at the event includ- ing Brayden's contest against an opponent who was trying to win on time by repeating moves. If Brayden had stopped the clock and put his hand up he could have asked for and would have got a draw. To his credit he kept on playing and in the end he lost on time.'' To advance to the nationals, the team won the Rodney Primary Schools Chess Tournament. Every Friday Mr Macdonald teaches strategies, techniques and chess secrets to over 30 students from the club. Many have progressed to become accomplished players and they look forward to competing in more tournaments to show their progress. Mr Macdonald, a tournament chess player for 15 years, also coaches students from Parakai, Huapai and Waioneke schools. I have really appreciated the oppor- tunity to help develop the characters of our children and have taken great pleasure in seeing them grow every week.''
