Chess school

Monmouth Chess School & Club cracks the whip !

Rule 3: Appropriate classroom behavior is expected, including: "one person talks at a time,"  students raise their hand with questions or answers to questions posed by the instructor, no side conversations or "poking" of other students no matter how friendly the claimed intention, no feet on the chairs or tables, no "rocking" in the chairs,  no food or beverages in class, no outside distractions of any kind in class including toys, playing cards, phones, game players, etc. 

But how does a school chess club survive during a pandemic lockdown ?  Video

Also, I came across this account of how one school club was started. Worth a read !
