Robert and Victoria Smith, Leah Pickthall, Gavin Martin, Adam and Jim Astbury and Max Vance from Whithorn Primary School travelled to Glasgow on Saturday, April 28, to compete in the Schools Mega Final Chess Challenge.

Jim was awarded a trophy for winning every game in the qualifying matches.

Victoria won her age section and also received a trophy.

Everyone had an excellent time and the whole team are very proud of themselves.

They would all like to thank Mrs Hazel Smith for running the chess club which they enjoy greatly and Mrs Smith and Mrs Vari Vance for driving all the way to Glasgow and going out of their way to do so.
