Any funds raised will go towards providing classrooms with print resources for class libraries and additional physical education and music resources. Contributions of any amount are much appreciated but please note, it is not mandatory to contribute to participate.  Contributions will be accepted from Nov 23rd to Dec 4th.

Please let us know if you have any questions at:

Steps to Participate:

  1. Go to and register with any username and password (scroll down for our internet safety reminders)
  2. Request to join the Maurice Cody Team here
  3. Each participant must complete this form to be accepted to our private Maurice Cody group. You will receive a notification on the Lichess platform when accepted.
  4. Return to the Maurice Cody Team page and click on the tournament’s name. Connect to the tournament by clicking on the green “Join” button.

For Internet Safety – Please remember:

  • Don’t use a username that is your real name or any indication of who you are. This is a worldwide platform, the username is public information.
  • Don’t share your password.
  • While students are participating within the Maurice Cody team tournament, they are only playing other students from our school so the team chat is safe.  
  • Please note that if students choose to play outside the Maurice Cody team forum, they are playing individuals from all over the world.  The only communication channel in Lichess is the chat, so good advice is to instruct your child not to chat with strangers in the general chat. They can play with anyone without chatting.
