Chess players from ESB participated in a Bergen Schools Chess Tournament and competed with 6 other primary schools in Bergen. ESB entered 3 teams in the tournament and were placed 1st, 4th and 10th out of 14 teams. ESB also won 1st place in 2019 in the Bergen tournament, now making ESB the most successful school in Bergen in this tournament! ESB also captured all 4 of the top boy and top girl prizes. ESB’s Team 1 will now advance to the Noord-Hollands Kampioenschap in March 2020 along with the 2nd and 3rd place teams from the Van Reenan and Matthieu Wiegman Schools respectively.

Congratulations to all of the players and good luck in the upcoming championship. We would also like to thank the ESB ECA (after school activity) coach Jasper Dekker who works with all of the children weekly during chess classes on Fridays.
