On Tuesday, 28 September, a Spelling Bee competition was held for Year 10 and Year 11. The competition was organised by English teachers for both English classes – English as a First and English as a Second Language.
The competition has crowned three spelling bee champions from English as a Second Language group: Petar Jovanovski (Year 10) demonstrated great success and won first place; Teodora Beatović (Year 11) and Balša Kovačević (Year 10) finished second and third, respectively. Our contestants showcased excellent spelling skills, quick thinking, and an incredible competitive spirit!
Due to the number of successful contestants who illustrated excellent skills, we will subsequently organise the final for groups that take English as a First Language.
International School definitely rose to the challenge
The Spelling Bee had several difficulty levels. The students were asked to spell the words OUT LOUD, not write them. They could ask the teachers for the meaning, the origin, and for the word to be used in a sentence.
With so many words from different cultures and languages, spelling in English can sometimes seem too difficult! Well, not for International School students, obviously.
