On Friday 15 June, nine girls from Somerville represented the school at the Auckland Girls' Chess competition, held in Mount Albert.

It was a long day, leaving early to beat the traffic, and returning after school ended for the day. All of the girls performed at their best in each of the six rounds, with special mention to Padme Yump who gained ninth place out of all the competitors in her age group.
