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 as after school activity, 3.00-4.00pm (During Covid closure, we will do online classes 4.00-5.00pm)
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.
Classes will start in online format, 4-5pm, and as soon as the school decides the sessions will turn into classroom sessions with the usual CCA timing.
Schedule will be as follows:
Wednesday P2 - P3: 13th Jan, 20th Jan, 27th Jan, 3rd Feb, 10th Feb, 24th Feb, 3rd Mar, 10th Mar (8 Sessions $2,000 - Open to players with at least a basic knowledge of the rules)
Thursday P4 - P6: 14th Jan, 21st Jan, 28th Jan, 4th Feb, 25th Feb, 4th Mar, 11th Mar, 18th Mar (8 Sessions $2,000 - Open to players with at least a basic knowledge of the rules)
