International Chess, Othello, Scrabble and Mind Sports Recreation are sections that make up the vibrant Mind Sports Club.
Board games cultivate students’ critical thinking and decision making skills. In addition, Mind Sports also cultivate teamwork and patience, as well as nurture teenagers’ cognitive and linguistic developments. During these CCA sessions, students also get the chance to forge bonds with the other CCA members and enjoy their time in CCA. Students will also be given opportunities to be involved in competitions which seek to instil in students the value of sportsmanship. In a bid to allow a more holistic form of education through CCA, Nanyang Mind Sports is embarking on a journey to serve the school community by introducing cognitive games. For students who are not wanting to specialise in a specific Mind Sport game can also choose to join the Mind Sports Recreation section. This section allow students to learn to play Chess, Othello and Scrabble as well as other board games. Nanyang Mind Sports serves as a platform for all students to challenge themselves and have fun while strengthening their strong sense of belonging to the larger community.
