Friday, 10 June 2011 06:46

The FIDE President promoted the Chess in Schools programme in four countries during May:

Nigeria4Abuja, Nigeria 
Kirsan Ilyumzhinov met with Mr. Asishana Okauru, General Director of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF). Kirsan said: "In my opinion, along with economic problems and poverty reduction in Africa, no less important attention should be paid to the programmes developing children's intelligence. 
The inclusion of chess into the school curriculum will certainly have a positive and lasting effect."
     Following the meeting, the leaders signed a Memorandum of Understanding, under which FIDE and NGF will hold a preparatory event for the signing of the Agreement to promote chess in all 36 provinces of Nigeria. The Agreement should be signed in July.


Kiev, Ukraine

Irish Primary Schools Girls League Finals 2011

irisht

There are 2 Nationwide Schools chess leagues running in Ireland; CheckMate and ChessZ. Both are run for Primary schools and Secondary schools - 4 in total.

CheckMate was started in 1998, and ChessZ (mine) in c2005. Both were run as private enterprises and in competition with each other.

Two years ago the CheckMate organisers decided to stop running theirs, John Alfred makes they run both now.

Last Year 330 teams took part, and this year 270. (down because of the recession and budget cuts in schools) (Report by John Alfred)
