Chess in the Macindoe Library

issue1916-chessThe chess craze is well and truly alive in the Macindoe Library. There is a scramble for seats as soon as the lunchtime bell goes when students come to play in The Milk Bar. I used to think that chess was a quiet game but this term I have come to realise that chess brings out fierce and loud competition amongst the players.


Last week, a group of visiting Japanese students came into the library to have a look around and within minutes, despite the language barrier, many of them were happily involved in a game of Chess with PLC Sydney students – and they were just as noisy. It was wonderful to see how chess conquers language barriers so well.


We are planning on running a chess tournament in 2017 so perhaps you may like to come along and join in?
