Grade 6 Spelling Bee Competition

The three Grade Six classes this year had an English Spelling Bee competition in which the boys participated on a purely voluntary basis.
The first round, with ‘easy’ words, was held on 3rd March, and after a few rounds, the eight contestants still standing from each class graduated to the second round.

The second round, with ‘harder’ words, was held on 30th March, again at classroom level. The twenty-four boys showed that they were very well prepared for the contest, and it was a hard-fought ‘battle’ until, mostly due to nervous anxiety, the boys started getting eliminated.

The final three contestants from each class who survived this gruelling test have now been given four weeks to prepare for the final session with ‘challenging’ words, where the nine boys will compete against each other for the first three places in front of the whole grade.
