Inaugural St Aidan’s Spelling Bee

Published on 04 Mar 2016 in English, School News, Year 8 News.

Tuesday 1st March saw rock concert levels of excitement descend upon the main hall for the inaugural St Aidan’s Spelling Bee.

Year 8 pupils competed for medals, trophies and glory in both team and individual events, cheered on by their classmates and teachers.

The tense contest saw the 8S team (Nina Richmond, Dot Sanders, Khushi Prakash, Matthew Walker and Ollie Peeters) emerge victorious, while the individual champion was Esther Mekako of 8Y, closely followed by George Kennedy (8S) who secured second place after a nail-biting “spell-off” with Charles Amos (8G).

Congratulations to all who took part and a huge “thank you” to Mr Kilby and Mrs Trought for organising the event.
