Chess Coaching

Chess coaching for students at Ultimo Public School in 2014 is held on Fridays from 8:00am – 9:00am in the library.  Term 1 lessons will commence on 14th February and are open to students in years 2-6.

Learning and playing chess helps children develop their logical thinking and problem solving skills, improves their concentration and focus, while also being a great source of enjoyment. Activities include group lessons on a demonstration chess board or interactive whiteboard, puzzle solving and fun practice games. 

Students earn merit awards by making checkmates, or by displaying skills and positive qualities, which all good chess players strive to develop.

If your child is interested in taking part, you can collect an enrolment form from Mrs Lemaire, download one from the school website or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for a copy.

Last week Uganda attended the UTS Gallery with Ms Godfrey and Mr Accaria. The exhibition was called 'Trace Recordings'. The exhibition considered changes in portraiture, identity and surveillance in our contemporary world. Artists use mediums as far flung as Pakistani folk inspired paintings to outdoor vinyl paste ups of people caught in Google map's street view. UTS ART educators introduced students to the artworks and the ideas behind them in a fun and interactive workshop. Students created face painting designs to fool computer recognition software and ventured on an accompanied walk outside the gallery to visit artworks on the street. You can check it out until the 29th of November.
