Two of our students returned from the Zealand Youth Chess Championships (DSU Sjællandsmesterskabet for Ungdom) in Holbæk with trophies this weekend! Sarah from P4DK won the competition and became “Sjællandsmester”, and Diya from P4EN came second. There were 26 children competing for the title and Sarah won 6 games out of 6 and Diya 4 out of 6.
Sarah will now represent Denmark at the World Championships for U10 (kids age 10), which takes place on 7-9 December, and at the European Championships for Nordic countries in the U13 group (kids under age 13), which takes place on 12-13 December in Aarhus.
Well done Sarah and Diya – you make everyone at the European School Copenhagen proud!
