On Monday afternoon, we hosted a friendly chess tournament between Priory Pembroke Academy and The Priory Academy LSST in the library. Eleven students from each academy participated and all the players were in Years 7, 8 and 9. It was a really fun afternoon with four timed rounds. Six LSST students tied for first place, winning all of their games and gaining the maximum possible score of 12 points each. Two Pembroke players tied for first place among their team with 8 points each. The Pembroke squad were accompanied by Mr Evans, Miss Gibbs and Mrs Coggan. All the students entered into the spirit of the afternoon with great courage and courtesy and made some new friends from another federation academy into the bargain – well done, everyone!
