Miss Fennell reports: “The final of this year’s Year 7 Spelling Bee was on Monday 16 October. All students who had scored highly in the class test were invited to take part in the live Final in front of the rest of their half of the year. The standard of the competitors was amazing, and the audience were very enthusiastic when it came to cheering on their peers and friends.
Following several competitive stages of difficult words and of students getting eliminated, we had two very tense head-to-head rounds to find the top speller from each year side. Our final winners were Poppie G from 7B2 and Maeher O from 7R2.
Thank you to all students that were part of the audience, the teachers and teaching assistants that came along and helped out, all the students that took part and a massive congratulations to Poppie and Maeher.”
