Our team, William Zhang, Winston Yao, John Jiang, William Kelly and a reserve player, Roger Wang, will represent Milford School at the Nationals Finals in Palmerston North at the end of the term.

We are proud of our chess players. This is what the officials said about our bright stars: “And congratulations go to all the finalist teams for their efforts. It is a great achievement to make the Auckland finals by proving you are the best in your zones. All your players fought hard and showed great sportsmanship. They were a credit to your schools. “

William Zhang is travelling to Turkey to represent NZ under 8 boys at the World Youth Chess Championship in November this year.

Also Winston Yao represented NZ at the same competition last year which was held in Vietnam.
