Playing chess helps to develop critical thinking skills. Learning chess in a structured way can access the full benefits of problem solving skills, creativity, concentration, memory and decision making. The school’s Chess Club meets at lunchtime once a week during Term 3. Lessons are taken by a qualified Chess Teacher from Chess Kids. The giant chess kit is a favourite lunchtime outdoor activity and is available for all students to use.
We hold parent information sessions every term. These sessions are compulsory for every family to attend at least once in their family’s time of education at Kingswood Primary School. At these sessions, you will hear about what devices are suitable to use at Kingswood, how to keep your child safe at home and school and what are our expectations for our students when using devices. In Term 4 of each year, we will hold an information session for the new Year 3 families and new families to Kingswood.
