Primary schools introduce chess as optional subject starting September


Improvement of concentration, memory, math skills, reading, logical thinking, creativity and critical thinking – these are just some of the benefits one can get from learning chess, which starting September will be on the list of optional subjects in primary schools for children in the first and second grades.

“We had a meeting at the Ministry of Education and Science and they told us that in the coming school year, chess will be included in the list of optional subjects for first and second grade children. If a group of about 20 children who show interest is formed, it will start in that school,” says Aleksandra Gakidova, Secretary of the Chess Federation board.
