Spelling Bee Regional Final
Published on 02/05/18
After successfully winning the House Foreign Language Spelling Bee Competition, three Year 7 pupils went to Gilredge House School in Eastbourne to compete in the South East Regional Final. They were amongst 44 other pupils from the region who had succeeded in getting to the final out of 2,700 who started the competition in September in the region. Lauren BW competed in the French competition and Toby R and Arjan D in the German; they had learnt another fifty words making a total of 150 words and faced stiff competition in a daunting yet exciting competition. All three pupils performed well; Lauren BW was in a tie-break for joint 4th and we are delighted to announce that Toby R gained a place in the German National Finals competition, which is a wonderful achievement. Well done to all three competitors for all their hard work.
