Greece starts Chess in Schools program
Thursday, 29 May 2014 12:49

greece_flagIn 2014 the Greek Ministry of Education approved the inclusion of a nationwide chess in schools program. Many Greek schools already offered chess, but this new move, based on FIDE’s Chess in Schools program, makes chess an official part of the morning  program of all primary schools. Chess is one of several elective subjects that the children may choose. The teaching will be done by a combination of class teachers, who will receive special chess training, and chess trainers licensed by the Greek Chess Federation.

The President of Greece, Karolos Papoulias and the Prime Minister, Antonis Samaras were personally involved and asked the Ministry of Education to move in this direction.

A few details:

a. It is for all primary schools.
b. It is for the first 4 grades (ages about 7-11).
c. Every grade has elective subjects for 2-3 hours per week; one hour will be scheduled for chess.
d. The lessons should be taught by a professional school teachers who know chess, who is a member of the Greek Chess federation or of a Greek chess Club

Schools will need some time to adjust and implement this decision, but it is already a fact and a reason to celebrate another success in Europe .

 
Mauritius develops chess in schools
Monday, 28 April 2014 10:22
kotouchmovemrismallKevin O'Connell was in Mauritius recently to help progress chess in schools developments there.

A meeting with  the Minister for Youth & Sports (Hon Satyaprakash Ritoo) went very well and lasted longer than planned thanks to his interest. His assistants, Zameer Janoo and Sudesh Appadoo helped smooth the way for the project.

A chess module of the Mauritius BECS qualification (Brevet  d'Etat de Cadre Sportif) is being developed. This 72-hour programme includes a seminar and a lot of practical work, teaching chess and running a school chess club.

A pilot project has begun with teachers in 25 secondary schools. The teachers' experience of chess ranges from complete beginner to experienced player, including a few members of the Mauritius Chess Federation. A seminar was held with the teachers of that pilot programme. The BECS qualification will be sufficient reward for them to justify giving up three days of their time during the Easter vacation for the workshop seminar. 

The Ministry of Education is also involved. They provided premises and logistical help for the seminar. There is interest within the Ministry to develop a chess in schools programme for their primary schools. Our thanks go to that Ministry's Mrs Saddul and Agathe.

The Mauritius Chess Federation, with its very active President, Hurrynarain Bhowany will see through the development of both programmes. The initial part of the project would not have been the success it was without the help of MCF Vice President Patrick Li Ying and Treasurer Jugutputty Callychurn, who suddenly found themselves in charge of the seminar when Kevin O'Connell was called away to attend the opening ceremony of the 2014 Jeux de l'Espoir. The work of Continental President Lakhdar Mazouz and Commission Chairman Ali Nihat Yazici was also an essential component.
