2010 Swan District Interschool Spelling Bee

On Thursday 23rd September, Mrs Bell and Mrs Fanelli took four students to represent our school in the Swan District Spelling Bee at Glen Forest Primary.

They were Sheryn  and Jaydon from year 5, Reama and Natniel from year 7. They had been practising hard during the term and were excited as well as nervous. Twenty schools entered this event with 40 students on stage at a time.

First was the year 4/5 final, Jaydon was eliminated in the 3rd round and Sherryn went through to the 5th round coming 12th overall. In the year 6/7 final Natniel was eliminated in the 2nd round and Reama in the 5th round, placing 15th overall. We were so proud of their efforts and are already looking forward to next years District Spelling Bee.

Congratulations to our 4 finalists but also to Filip, Jacqui, Tony, Abiel, Tida, Thomas, Tyler, Bianca, Claudia, Anne and Goran who made it through to the Koondoola finals.
