Ficheall Workshop for Dublin-based Teachers (DWEC)
On Tuesday 19th October 2021 from 7pm-8.30pm, Ficheall network members David Fitzsimons (IM) and Liam Murray will host a workshop in collaboration with Dublin West Education Centre. Any primary school teacher interested in teaching chess in their school is welcome to attend. We are particularly looking to speak with Dublin-based teachers but all teachers are welcome.
The workshop will detail the work of Ficheall, the resources available on the Ficheall website and YouTube page (and how to use them in your classroom) and how to use an online chess platform to further promote chess in your school. The 90 minute session will allow plenty of time for Questions and Answers also.

Chess for Social Skills – Summer Course 2021 – Review
The 2021 Summer Course took place online for the first time (through Zoom). It was hosted by 16 educations centres by 15 tutors with an amazing 172 teachers completing the course!
We are hopeful of a return to face-to-face summer courses in summer 2022 but the feedback was so positive from the online courses we plan to make it available again as many teachers found it an accessible and flexible format.
