Chess Ideas/ Chess Club



Chess is all about deduction, reasoning, strategic analysis,
concentration, spatial awareness, logic, social interaction and
so much more. But most of all it’s fun at Eltham Primary with
Peter & Sue from Chess Ideas, teaching at our lunchtime club.

About Chess Ideas

Chess Ideas commenced in Melbourne in 1994 and currently teaches chess clubs/ classes/ extension programs in about 80 schools in Melbourne and Ballarat.

How the club works

There is a weekly class consisting of 10 - 15 minutes of interactive instruction on a large demonstration chessboard, followed by puzzle analysis and game playing. In-school tournaments are usually held twice a year with trophies and certificates.
