Who are we?
We are a group of volunteers who for many decades have been passionately supporting the interschool chess competitions in Canterbury, New Zealand to run at a reasonable cost for students. We are very proud of our ongoing feedback which is our events are well organised, that our people provide a safe, supportive environment for students.
The regional qualifying competition we run is the only one in Canterbury where schools can proceed on to further official New Zealand Chess Federation competitions.
The Trust also runs other events each year - a full list and online entry forms are available in the Competitions section of our website. Students can play in Term 2 and 3 competitions and also participate in workshops. We have a teacher on the Trust that can support you with setting up a club in your school.
