Matthew O’Shea is achieving great chess success. Matthew is only in Year 2 but he is already representing GCC in chess tournaments. Recently Matthew competed at the St Columban’s Invitational Chess Tournament.
Matthew won five of the seven games, placing him in eighth position overall. This was out of 78 students and Matthew is up to five years younger than some of his opponents! At one point Team GCC (with one competitor) was placed ahead of four other full strength teams!
This is also Matthew’s first year playing tournament chess so we can’t wait to see what the future holds for him.
