Chess - widely known for sharpening analytical abilities among students, is an ancient game (as old as 1500 years) that has been quiet popular among children, adults and the old. In many parts of the world, chess has been included as an integral part of the curriculum as it builds and improves reasoning and problem solving capabilities among students.

Knowing the usefulness of the game and the fact that it is quite beneficial for the young minds, Global Indian International School (GIIS), Noida commemorated the 2nd Inter-School Chess Championship in collaboration with the Noida Chess Association in the school premises with great exuberance and anticipation. The tables were set and the participants from various schools of Delhi NCR were ready to test their skills and intelligence on an inter school platform.

Jha (Indian Navy) along with Mr. Rajeev Katyal – Country Director, GIIS India & Japan, and Ms. Sunita Jaisingh – Academic Head, GIIS India made the finale even more exciting and worth attending.
