Chess

Mount View Primary School has a wonderful reputation in interschool chess tournaments.

The Open chess team has won the Victorian Chess Tournament on four occasions since 2009, while the Girls’ team has also won the state competition on four occasions since 2009.

In addition, the Open team has won the Australian chess competition three times and the girls have won twice.

Chess at Mount View starts with a good instruction and coaching program that is conducted by Chess Ideas. Skilled chess coaches teach the interested students on Mondays at school, both during lunchtime and after school for an advanced group. Students from Year 1 to Year 6 are eligible to participate in chess lessons and competitive chess tournaments throughout the year.

A highlight of chess at Mount View is the sporting way in which students play and the friendly manner in which they support their peers.
