"Chess is the struggle against error!” – Johannes Zukertort
Presidium Noida strongly believes that Chess makes a student wiser and clear-sighted and when we got the opportunity to host the District-Level Chess Championship, it was a big platform to promote this beautiful board game amongst our students. Students from various schools of Noida such as DPS, Shiv Nadar, Apeejay, Amity, Bal Bharti, Indus Valley, Lotus Valley, Somerville, Gyanshree and Sapphire gathered under one roof to unleash their talent in Chess. The tournament was divided into 4 categories - Under 9 Girls, Under 9 Boys, Under 13 Girls and Under 13 Boys.
The august gathering included chief guest Mr. Surinder Chauhan (UPCA Secretary), Ms. Priyanca Ghosh (Head of School), Dr. Yashveer Singh (Presidium Franchise Owner) and the our sponsor of the day, Mr. Anuj Talwar.

Parents and teachers encouraged and applauded the promising champions for using their own strategies in the game and making the game quite nail-biting till the last minute.
We heartily congratulate our grade 3 student Aarini Bhandari for winning in Under 9 Girls category and getting selected for the Under 9 UP State Level Chess Championship 2018, wherein 20 schools participated with 150 children.
