This year for the first time SISS Primary took part in the School Chess Tournament of Hessen for primary students. The team consisted of Alex DeBoer, Julian Merz, Sidharth Nair and Anton Goddard. Leander Merz was their back-up player. The team was accompanied by Mrs Iris Dittmar, youth chess group organizer from the chess club SV Schachforum Darmstadt 1994 e.V., where all the boys are training.
The competition took place on the 11th of December in the Erasmus Primary School Offenbach. Our SISS team was competing against two teams from the Erasmus School, two teams from Peter-Schöffer-School Gernsheim and a team from the Primary School in Weißkirchen.
