Spelling Bee- the linguistic competition of the intellect, a competition where one has to be calm under pressure, a competition whose benefits extend beyond language. Just imagine that snowy second after the announcement of the word where the contestants have to sift through their store of remembered words to see if they can spell the one that’s asked . It’s that breathtaking? To give our students a sneak peek into this excitement a Spelling Bee Competition was organised for the students of Grade 8 on 8th February,2022 in the school hall.
The nine spellers had to go through four rounds namely-Word Builder, The Spell Master, The Proof Reader and Rapid Fire. After four rounds, there was a tie between Harish Nadar(Gomes House) and Nigel D’souza (Keane House). After a showdown between the two finalists, Nigel D’souza was crowned the Spelling Bee Champion. Not only the participants but also the audience had a heavy dose of spellings injected into their brains.
