This past Sunday the Discovery College Chess Team competed in the 8th Annual ISF Academy Chess Open held at ISF Academy. A record number of schools attended with nearly 280 students participating. Discovery College Lower Primary Team (Mahir Uppal, Savin Peramunetilleke, Nathan Chang and Noah Michishita) were again crowned First Place School Champions. They also won several other individual prizes:

Mahir Uppal – 2nd place Champion

The two-man Upper Primary Team (Seth Peramunetilleke and Noah Chang) managed to secure 6th place School Prize Champions fighting it out with the 26 other schools.

Seth’s 5.5 out of 6 points won him 2nd place Champion and Noah’s 4 out of 6 points saw them to this victory.

A great effort put forth by both Discovery College Chess Teams!
