It's raining chess certificates in São Paulo
After a year of hard work, students from Colégio Catamarã (São Paulo, Brazil) are awarded Chessity Certificates. Students who are in the same class receive certificates of different levels and this is feasible because each student works according to his or her possibilities. This initiative results in students who are increasingly engaged and motivated to continue studying and playing chess. Colégio Catamarã has chess in its curriculum from Year 2 (Primary) to Year 7 (Secondary). After Year 7 chess becomes optional.
