Keilor Downs College has an active Chess Team that meets regularly in the FLC at lunchtimes. . Since 2016, students have been practicing to upskill their chess ability in preparation for regional, state and national events. Chess has become an important part of KDC’s extra‑curricular programme.
KDC are developing a proud history of great results in chess competitions.
In 2018 we even finished 3rd in Nationals in the Open Secondary Division.
2021 saw us finish 5th in the Nationals in the Middle Years Division.
2021 was also notable for the College entering our first girls only teams and we look forward to the girls developing their game further in 2022.
Students who are interested in playing Chess are welcome to daily lunchtime practice in the FLC or to find out more information about the Chess Team contact Ms. King through KDC teams or email Lucinda.King@education.vic.gov.au
