cis_100_inter_schoolNepal is moving fast with the development of chess in schools.

Nepal is the 'roof' of the world - the border with China runs across the summit of Mount Everest, the highest place on earth.

Just in the last month or so, several events have been held.

A Nepal-China friendship tournament was played in Kathmandu on 23 August, with 5 teams from Nepal and one from China.

This month, 148 children from 40 schools took part in the inter valley school competition.

Our thanks to Nepal Chess Association President Rajesh Joshi for the information and photographs.

romania_kni_signsIn 2014 an Education Ministry decree approved the curriculum for the first 2 years for studying chess, as an optional matter in the primary schools. This achievement opens the possibility to any school – pupils, teachers, parents, to choose chess as a class and follow the curriculum, choose some manuals and to learn and play this wonderful and useful educational tool.

Moreover, this May an agreement was signed between the Education Minister and the Romanian Chess Federation, putting into practice the proper spreading of knowledge of chess among teachers through the administrative education institutions and by providing a chess kit to 500 schools. The chess kits contain 10 chess sets, 1 demo board and manuals. This platform creates the basis for a large expansion of chess in the education institutions all over the country, offers the possibility for kids to benefit from learning and playing chess and so grows the awareness of chess in Romania.
