Year 7 and 8 Spellathon Champions
Whilst texting and acronyms are becoming the norm,
eg, MSB, IRC, NAPLAN, ROSA, HSC, LOL, YOLO, etc, it’s
important to know that spelling matters.
During Term Two, the Year 7 and 8 Spellathon finals
were held. This was a spell off between the College’s
most consistent spellers who over six weeks, competed
in vigorous spelling test heats in order to qualify for the
Christine de Launey Spellathon finals.
Congratulations to Claire Ward who is our Christine de
Launey Year 8 Spelling Champion after correctly spelling
“mischievous”. Also congratulations to Rima Nigudkar
who is our Christine de Launey Year 7 Spelling Champion
after correctly spelling “ecosystem”.
