Each year, students compete in three inter-school tournaments which are conducted by Gardiner Chess.
Players play in every round of the tournament – win, lose or draw.
All results from inter-school competitions are sent to the Queensland Junior Ratings Officer for rating.
The winning team of the Term 3 tournament is invited to play in the State Championships which are held in Brisbane during Term 4. Students must have played in the Term 1 and/or Term 2 tournaments to be eligible to compete in the State Championships.
Organised by the Queensland Branch of the Children’s Book Council of Australia, Readers Cup is a state-wide competition for young readers.
Participation in Readers Cup challenges students to read widely and to develop a love of reading while working collaboratively in teams.
Teams of four students read a set of book and then compete against teams from other schools to answer questions from the books.
