Sunday Junior Chess Club

New long-term home for our Sunday Junior Chess Programs

From Term 3, 2024 we are delighted to be moving to a new venue at Banyule Primary School!!

MC Square has served us very well as a temporary home after the closure of St Bridget's, but with no additional spaces available for us, we are constrained from growing the Club any further, and sadly for the first time ever, in Term 2 we have had to turn away prospective students.

It will be good to return to a school setting. At Banyule Primary we will have lots of space in their big new gym, together with the furnished adjacent OSHC room, which will give a lot of flexibility over the number and size of the coaching groups. We are very grateful to the Principal and the School Council at Banyule Primary for embracing our new arrangement.
