UMLAZI District Chess Tournament

On 5 March, the UMLAZI District School Team Tournaments were held, and St James Team was placed 6th overall.

On Saturday 12 March, St James School Durban hosted the U/9, U/10, and U/12 Individual Tournament. One of the St James pupils was placed 4th in his age group – congratulations!

Even though all the schools played their hearts after two years of Social Distancing, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was heartwarming to see pupils engaging with each other, making new friends, and spending a Saturday playing a Sport they love!


Coaches and parents helped themselves to tea and coffee, and the games began. Thank you to Coach – we appreciate you! Mrs Neetling, WHERE would we be without you?

“I am convinced, the way one plays chess always reflects the player’s personality. If something defines his character, then it will also define his way of playing.”

– Vladimir Kramnik.
