For the third year in a row, Neva Foundation is pursuing its chess in school program in Geneva canton in collaboration with the Education Department. At the end of last school’s season, the Education Department’s evaluation proved once more the numerous knowledge acquired by children attending our program.
After the last year super final’s astonishing success of last June, gathering 1200 children (http://www.neva-fondation.org/index.php?m1=images&m2=&search_type=3&pId=neva), and inspired by our chess tournaments played by famous musicians during the Music Festival in Verbier last summer (http://www.neva-fondation.org/index.php?m1=images&m2=&search_type=3&pId=neva), qualifications' tournaments will take place in May to prepare the final in June 2017 within the schools.
Other novelty this year: the publication of Volume 2 « Tous aux échecs » for the advanced level players, who attended at least one year of chess courses with Neva Foundation.
Reaffirming its commitment to youth, Neva Foundation is transmitting its knowledge and values to the next generations. Coming from the Geneva University and from the Students Association and Primary Education, the teachers of Neva Foundation combine professional chess experience and teaching expertise
