Spelling Bee 2019

March 8th, 2019

Ms. Fitzgerald recently brought 5th and 6th classes together to participate in our local heat of the Spelling Bee. Every child in both classes were asked to spell a word. If they answered correctly, they qualified to the next round and this continued until there was only one person standing!!

The standard was really high from an early stage, which was clear when nobody got knocked out in the 1st round. The words got harder and harder as the rounds progressed. Children could ask for a definition of the word or to put it in a sentence.

Maneet, Simona and Evan were neck and neck in the final round and it came down to the wire, with Maneet being declared our Spelling Bee champion.

Congrats to Maneet who now qualifies for the county final!!

Well done everyone!!
