Our 12-week curriculum is taught over the course of a
term as part of the regular school day. Students receive instruction
once per week. Lessons last a full class period and generally consist
of a lecture, a structured activity, and time for free play. Classroom
teachers remain present to aid the Chess instructor, who is employed
and trained by the Foundation.
Schools participating in this program receive a supply
of Chess sets and boards to help in jump-starting their school club.
By the end of the 12-week term, all students are able to play a legal
game of Chess. To continue building their Chess skills we offer
after-school programs at our Chess Resource Centre, which we have
established at # 13 Brabant Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain.
