The 10th Chess Olympiad for Schoolchildren was held in the Chess Academy of Armenia. The Lyceum chess team (Miqayel Melkonyan, Feliks Andranikyan, Sargis Yeghiazaryan, Hripsime Stepanyan, coach – Nelly Pilosyan) also took part in it.
‘‘Liva’’ vocal ensemble (Lyceum students are a part of it) ceremonially opened the Olympiad. They sang the “Hymn of Chess” (lyrics – chess teacher Nelly Pilosyan, music – artistic director Ruzanna Mkrtchyan), sharing their good mood with the participants.
The Lyceum team took the 5th and 6th places among the teams from 21 schools of Nor Nork and Nork Marash districts.
Special thanks to Smbat Lputyan, the founder-president of the Chess Academy of Armenia, and the whole staff for the effective collaboration.
