Spanish Team from Andújar

Short note about Spanish team – IES Jándula, Andújar, Spain

We are writing from a high school in Andújar (Spain), a city which is very close to Linares, where so many GM chess tournaments have been held, as we are also interested in implementing a talent program which includes chess with our own students. This course we can teach chess, in the high school, to students into the chess programme. As for the teachers who are behind the talent project in our high school, we are a multidisciplinary group which already includes English, Music, Economics and Computer Science teachers.
