Malvern College HK

Starting in September 2018 we provided chess chess instruction to Malvern College Hong Kong in its first year of operation in Hong Kong.

We are very glad to be partner of Malvern College HK for chess instruction because this school is very clear and serious about bringing chess to its students (see this SCMP article: Chess will be a co-curricular activity at Malvern College Hong Kong) and let them reap the various cognitive benefits associated with chess.

We will be teaching chess 5 days per week as after school activity​, 3.00-4.00pm.

Our training focuses on bringing children, whom mostly haven't played chess in any tournament format before, comfortably to play in individual and team tournaments. All our students can join our once per month "End of Month" tournament which is a controlled competition in which players of equal strength play for medals and trophies and learn how to play with a chess clock and time their thinking. 

Registration is to be done on this site directly after which we will share the registrations with Mr. Hall.

Schedule will be each weekday 3-4pm as follows:

  • Monday P2 - P3: 14th Sept, 21st Sept, 28th Sept, 05th Oct, 19th Oct, 02nd Nov, 09th Nov, 16th Nov, 23rd Nov (9 Sessions $2250 - Open to beginners with some knowledge)
