Chess is a reflection of a creative mind; it is more than a game of conquest,
conflict and competitive skill. We have a chess room having a capacity of 30
students playing altogether. Learning and developing skills in Chess offers our
pupils multiple mental and intellectual benefits. Chess requires mental agility
and the ability to think strategically, anticipate your opponent’s moves, and
work out how to solve each set of problems as they arise. Playing chess
regularly helps to develop critical thinking processes and inherent mental skills
that are useful in all areas of life, and allows children to be creative and
imaginative while finding a balance between emotional and rational thought.
For these reasons, at NPAIC portals chess forms an important part of our main
school curriculum.
