MSSD Petaling Perdana (Primary School) Chess Championship

SHAH ALAM - MSSD chess competition for primary school (Under 12) category for Petaling Perdana district started yesterday on Monday. For many years SK Seksyen 9 has been the host. There are two sections as usual which are the Boys and the Girls. The number of players take part this year are 156 in the Boys section and 86 in the Girls section. GiLoCatur's youngest child, Fahim Al-Faqeh, represents his school, SK Bukit Jelutong, in the Boys section. The secondary school category, both Under 15 and Under 18, was held last week.

For information, there are ten (10) districts in Selangor MSS. Petaling Perdana district is one of the biggest in Selangor. Actually, Petaling Perdana was part of Petaling district, while Petaling Utama was the other one. The   MSSD chess championship is a bit early this year because the national-level MSSM will be held in March instead in June as usual. Several districts have carried out their championships while few others will conduct theirs soon. MSSD Kuala Selangor will start its championship today. For Kuala Selangor district, both primary and secondary school categories will be held concurrently. GiLoCatur's only daughter, Anis Fariha, will represent her school in the event.  

Four rounds had completed in the first day of the MSSD Petaling Perdana championship. Another four rounds will be held today.  Good luck to all the participants especially to Fahim and his school chess team.
