Chess is one of the extra activities that the school offers which encourages the boys to use their mind. It creates a great social activity in the library at lunch times and boys can often find hidden talents with strategy and patience.

At IPC, students have the opportunity to compete three times a year in the Regional Queensland Schools Chess competition. These are all day events held at local schools were students get to play some quality Chess in a friendly inter-school setting.



IPC Chess players are now preparing for the third round of the 2021 Regional Queensland Interschool CHESS Competition. 

Students selected to represent the College will miss classes for the day and may be in either the Junior, Open or Premier League divisions.

WHEN:                      Wednesday 11th AUGUST 2021

TIME:                        8.30am – 3.00pm


COST:                        $20 (Registration Fee payable to the office)

 NB:  To maintain a Covid-safe environment, any participant who presents with flu-like symptoms on the day will not be permitted to play.

 Please return the signed permission form to the office along with the $20 registration fee to secure your son's participation on the day.

 In 2020, the IPC Chess Club once again made a charitable monetary donation to the “Knights of the Southern Cross”.  These funds will continue to assist those in need around Australia and the world.  THANK YOU!!  Your contribution to this cause is greatly appreciated!
