On Thursday 27th of September the pupils of Westbury House were lucky enough to be given an assembly by a former British champion and master of chess, Mr Basman. The children were thoroughly interested and engaged as they answered questions and took part in the assembly. Mr Basman explained that chess is a great way to use your brain as the game expands and uses thinking skills whilst having fun. We hope that the children were inspired and will take up chess so that maybe one day they can compete in a nationwide competition and pass on their chess skills to others. Thank you Mr Basman!
