This didactic competition was slated for March 16th 2016, 1:00 pm at the campus of DU VAAL College, registered 15 schools but unfortunately, not all the schools that registered had the courage to face it. Each school sent out 3 spellers who have been coached by their English language mistresses / masters.
Our students made a triumphant entry to the ceremony ground with the spellers full of confidence and enthusiasm. It is worthy to take note that, this is the first time our school is participating in this competition. Therefore our premium. Our fans club did their utmost best to cheer up the spellers and dancers; our school was opportuned to perform a dance during an interval of recess.
The competition was not a bed of roses as so many competitors were booted out during the first and second round of the competition (inclusive our two students)
The competition grew stiff when one of the students (Cielenou Krys) made it to the finalist round of 10, and gloriously rampaged diligently her way to the 3rd position. This was received with fabulous euphoria by the spectators and fan clubs. It was a thrilling, exciting and didactic academic event. Compelling spellers to go through 3000 words within 2 months kudos to the student and kudos to the school especially Our Director who have been very active in providing the necessary resources to ensure this exercise not ending in futility.
