There has been a renewed interest in the game of chess recently. Maybe it's our experiences in lockdown or maybe it's the Netflix show, The Queen's Gambit but more and more people have taken an interest in the game. Mr Collum has decided to facilitate this interest in Castlepollard Community College with the establishment of the school Chess Club. The club meets on Friday mornings and members can develop their understanding of the game, play for fun or take part in organised tournaments. With the curtailment of so many extra-curricular activities this year, it's great to see our students getting involved in a new hobby outside the classroom. Best of luck to all involved and thank you for Mr Collum for running the club.
