Extra-curricular activities

Darlington Public School provides several extra-curricular activities in order to develop our students love of learning outside of the classroom.

Chess club

Our school runs a chess club for students to help students develop their growing minds while having fun in a supervised envrionment.

The aim of the chess club is to offer students with some existing knowledge of chess an opportunity to play different opponents and develop and practise their skills in a supervised environment.

Thanks to the overwhelming expressions of interest from parents and students, the school was able to engage the specialised children's coaching organisation Sydney Academy of Chess to run the programme.

The club has greatly benefited from the $1,200 Telstra Foundation grant it was awarded the help of parent Rebecca Askew.

Running time and costs

The chess club runs for an hour on Monday afternoons in the library.
