Term 4, 2021 - The Plan

Junior Chess Club (JCC):
  • We continue to offer the Junior Chess Club in term 4, running the program online for 1 hour while Covid restrictions prevent us from returning to Balwyn North.
  • Based on the current Victoria Roadmap, and pending any formal advice to schools from the Department of Education, we are hoping that at least some of the sessions will be conducted on site from early to mid November.
Junior Tournament Squad (JTS):
  • We still maintain that the Junior Tournament Squad program is most beneficial to the students delivered face-to-face.
  • We hope that a combination of weeks during November on-site and opportunities for double make-up session day(s) at the end of term will allow for the equivalent of a 7-week program.
  • At this stage, we are not able to provide a definite schedule until we know when the program is permitted back on site.
