Years 9/10 Try-A-Trade Project – Giant Chess Board

20 August 2021

On Monday 16 August to Wednesday 18 August, under the guidance of Wayne from Skill Hire, our Try-A-Trade students from Year 9 and Year 10 constructed a new life-size chess board and two limestone block/timber bench seats.  The chess board was constructed with paving blocks and reinforced with concrete.  The students took great pleasure in measuring the area and laying the pavers.  They were a credit to the school and themselves and their trainer was very pleased and impressed.  This was a totally hands-on project for the students who thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  The project was a great success.  Chess pieces have been ordered and the giant chess board will soon be ready to play on.  The chess board is situated in A Block outside The Arts rooms.

Thanks must go to Deb Middleton for organising the project with Skill Hire, Kevin Castensen for his supervision, Deb Stevens for her on-site support, Val Terry and Sebastian Foran for their preparation in serving morning tea.
