Chesspower provide a fantastic opportunity for schoolchildren to develop their chess skills and to take part in many exciting and well-run tournaments throughout the country. Head Coach Paul Macdonald builds a strong rapport with children of all ages, motivating and encouraging each one to do their best.
Thanks so much for supporting Stanhope Road. It was Leigh's (year 5 &6 coordinator) first time attending the Chess Power event and we both agree that you run an excellent program. Your instructions to the students are really clear and everybody had a great time.
We are looking forward to upcoming events.
Joseph Teofilo from the Wairarapa, who has participated in many Chess Power events was awarded Wairarapa Maori male Junior Sportsman of the Year and the Peoples Choice trophy for his achievements in chess both regionally and nationally.
