Dear Mums, Dads and Carers

Chess Club Taster Sessions, P4 – 7

P4-7 Chess Club, also known as “Chess Mates” will be restarting this term.

Who?             For primary 4s, 5s, 6s and 7s, children who can or cannot play chess

What?            Taster sessions (to help decide if they’d like to come regularly, to an after-school club, after the Easter/Spring holidays)

Where?         Gym Hall/Dining Room

When?           Thursdays, after school, 3.15 – 4.30pm

The dates for the three taster sessions are below:


  • Thursday 14 March 2019
  • Thursday 21 March 2019
  • Thursday 28 March 2019


Please let us know if your child is interested in taking part by completing and returning the tear-off slip below by Monday 11 March 2019.


After the Easter/Spring Holiday, I aim to hopefully extend this club to an afterschool club, from 3.15 – 4.15/4.30pm for the remainder of the 4th term. But for this, I would definitely require some parent/carer volunteers to support this.  If a club were to start at this time, after the holidays, please detail if you would be able to help on a Thursday after school.  Please note that parent helpers do not need to know how to play chess. We can all learn together!


Yours sincerely

Chess Club Taster Sessions, P4 – 7


My child can/ cannot play chess and would like to go to the lunchtime taster sessions.


I’d be interested in supporting an after-school chess club as a parent volunteer and could help on a   Thursday  after school
