English Spelling Bee
Published on 10/07/18
On Wednesday 4 July, the English department held the final of the Year 8 and Year 9 Spelling Bee. Pupils had already competed in their classes and two members from each class qualified for the final round.
Ten contestants from Year 8 and ten contestants from Year 9 battled it out, having to spell words that became increasingly more difficult as the rounds progressed. The rest of the year group watched on and supported, which helped alleviate the contestants’ nerves.
A great time was had by all involved and a special mention to the Year 8 and 9 compères: Miyanda M, Matthew S, Ciaran S and Rebecca T.
The winners were:
- Year 8: Tristan C and Charlie D
- Year 9: Rami dM, Fatima K, Dongseoung K
