GSN Chess Club

Sunday 25 February 2018
2:00 - 4:30pm

***NEW IN 2018 - GSN Chess Club***

GSN Chess Club is open to children aged 5 and over. We will try to match them with players at their chess skill level rather than players of their age. Some will be beginners and we will coach them, others will have stronger skills. We will have two adults keeping an eye on the games and helping the children learn chess.

We are currently gathering chess boards (we have five) but if you have one that you are willing to bring, that would help.

Please bring a nut-free snack to share with the group.   

NOTE: Parents are required to stay and supervise their child(ren) to meet Child Safe Standards.

RSVP: Please text Lyndall on 0407 112 646 for address.

Minecraft Madness

Saturday 3 March 2018

Welcome to two and half hours of uninterrupted Minecraft! All children will have a "creative" afternoon after being "whitelisted" to our secure home server.

Please bring a nut-free snack to share.

Some tech details: Children should bring their own laptop if they have one. If not, we do have some spares, so just let us know you need one when you RSVP. Children must have their own Minecraft account that works on a computer and know their username and password. Unfortunately iPad accounts will not work. John can discuss this with you if you are not sure.

RSVP: This may book out, so please RSVP asap by text to Louise on 0414 578 806
