and to interact on a more informal basis with other teachers. These outcomes provide our boys with worthwhile mathematical tasks in developing concepts and skills to enhance motivation and introduce a variety of activities as part of their learning experiences at the School. The tutoring relationships that are developed with the older boys as mentors with the younger mentees is the Club’s main goal in developing learning relationships to enhance the pastoral care component through this mentoring relationship network, both within and outside the classroom. This has helped to directly engage other boys in the material and give them opportunities to achieve a level of satisfaction from working and learning together. | Dr Frederick Osman MIC Mathematics Club below: Mathematics Club students during a lunch-time enrichment activity A successful term of Chess had all members of the Trinity Grammar School Chess Club actively involved with either competing in the CAS Chess Competition, being coached or competing in social games at School. Our CAS Chess teams have had a wonderful season with a closely-fought battle with their nemesis, Knox Grammar School, for first place. Unfortunately, the fixture against Knox in round three proved the deciding factor and we had to settle for second place overall. Congratulations to Knox and well done to our players for their good sportsmanship throughout. Friday afternoon competitions at School were also fiercely contested. We have introduced a score card system for each member of the Club, the boys playing at least two games of chess each afternoon and recording their scores. The OTU Chess fixture is definitely a highlight on the School’s Chess calendar, with Chess masters such as Nicholas Chernih (’04), Jonathan Shen (’05), Leighton Walters (’04) and Edward Ratanasena (’06) showing the new generation no mercy. Staff support was much appreciated, in particular Dr Acland‘s assistance in organizing and supervising the CAS Chess teams. William Cook (12Sc), the consummate Chess Club Captain, led the boys magnificently through this season’s torrid competition. Well done, William. | Ken Wong MIC Chess below: l-r: Old Boy Nicholas Chernih (’06), Marco Pascale (9Mu), Leo Jiang (9Mu), back William Cook (12Sc) Chess Term I 2011 TRINITY NEWS 23
