Wellington Catholic DSB Hosts Inaugural Secondary District Chess Tournament Spearheaded by Student Senator

Released For Publication - March 7, 2024

The Wellington Catholic District School Board hosted the inaugural secondary district chess tournament on March 6, 2024 at the Wellington Catholic DSB Catholic Education Centre.

Following a lengthy tradition of hosting the district elementary chess tournament, which sees over 200 students from each of our elementary schools competing for titles in their respective grades, Kellyanne Mangali, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic High School Student Senator spearheaded the development of a Secondary District Chess Tournament.

The tournament welcomed students from St. James Catholic High School, Bishop Macdonell Catholic High School, and Our Lady of Lourdes CHS for a full day, five-round chess tournament.

Over 35 students participated throughout three divisions, Junior – open to grades 9 and 10 students, Senior – open to grades 11 and 12 students and Rookie – which welcomed students from any grades who have never played in a formal chess tournament.

After five grueling rounds, we are pleased to share the following results:

Phoenix Jasin, St. James CHS
Adrian Marsili, Bishop Macdonell CHS
Kiana Hostick, St. James CHS

Henryk Szymczak, St. James CHS
Marcus Gonzalas, Bishop Macdonell CHS
Justin Accos, Our Lady of Lourdes CHS

Oksana Parol-Perkins, St. James CHS
Zach Alejo, Our Lady of Lourdes CHS
Kyle Ting, Our Lady of Lourdes CHS
The Wellington Catholic DSB looks forward to continuing on this student led initiative next year.


The Wellington Catholic District School Board consists of 18 elementary schools, three secondary schools and an alternative education program. We are proud to meet the educational interests of near 9,000 students in the City of Guelph and the County of Wellington.
