Central Queensland Christian College signed a few students up for the Rockhampton Chess Competition for the first time 4 years ago. Our inspiring team didn’t place that first year but that didn’t stop a chess revolution from breaking out in the school playground. Our hard working students learned a few tricks and entered the competition again the following year...Central Queensland Christian College has placed first ever since. Round one of the 2012 competition was held on February 23rd and both the CQCC Highschool and Primary teams stole the show.

One of our hopes and prayers for children as they grow up is that they will be able to enter the world with a sense of confidence and humble boldness. Where does such confidence come from?

Socially, it was the perfect opportunity to mingle with other parents and enjoy some delicious coffee! Central Queensland Christian College really encourages strong parent-teacher relationships so it was wonderful to have such a large attendance on Wednesday night. If you were unable to attend Parent Information Night, please to talk to your child’s teacher about what was discussed.
