The Inter-School Chess Charitable Trust Board was established in 2002 to foster chess in schools, particularly in Christchurch and the wider Canterbury area.

The formal information about the Trust is available on the Charities Commission website www.charities.govt.nz. Our registration number is CC47098.


Our main activity is the organisation of the annual Canterbury Inter-School Chess Competitions for Years 1-6 and Years 7-8 pupils. These are single day competitions for teams of four players. The Trust also runs the annual Canterbury Girls' Team and Individual Chess Competitions for Years 1-13 girls.
