NAB Schools First: 'Chess Squared'

The 'Chess-squared program' involves community tutors delivering chess tuition in class time. It started in Castlemaine primary schools and won a State Numeracy award. More than 12 schools in the local area participate in the program and the student outcomes include improved numeracy, school attendance and in particular a newfound confidence and enthusiasm for school with young boys from disadvantaged families.
