logoGreat news from Anna Harazińska, our member from Poland.

On  June 27 the Polish Minister of Education – Anna Zalewska –  officially announced that from September 1, 2017 chess will be implemented in primary schools as a tool for learning mathematics.

Meanwhile the Education through Chess in School programme has made great strides. The project is organized and guided by the POLISH CHESS FEDERATION in cooperation with the 16 provincial chess federations and local authorities. The goal is to increase mathematical primary skills among children in the classes 1 – 3 in primary schools. Key partners for Polish Chess Federation include Ministry of National Educations and Ministry of Sport and Tourism.

The project had been implemented in 2013 in 152 schools. In August 2016 we have registered 800 schools.
From 2012 we had trained over 1500 teachers.
Estimated number of pupils learning chess in schools – over 35.000
