Six of our Preparatory School boys had their skills put to the test at the recent Interschool Spelling Bee competition held at Guildford Grammar School.

Jake Hashem (Year 5) and Justin Goh (Year 4) performed strongly in their divisions claiming 4th and 5th place respectively, while fellow competitors Kai Mahalangham (Year 6), Alex Price (Year 5), Aaron Goh (Year 6) and Vidarsha Vijaysinghe (Year 4) put up a good battle in their respective divisions.

“It was a fun experience for the boys and they really stepped up to the challenge,” said Mrs Sonja Madden, Learning Development Centre (LDC) Co-ordinator.

“Featuring 24 competitors across each year group and over 10 independent schools from across Perth, the spelling bee competition presents an exciting opportunity each year to put our very best to the test.”

“Ambidextrous, effervescent, paraphernalia and rendezvous are just some of the many challenging words the boys can come up against during the competition.”

Year 4 participant Vidarsha said, “It was certainly a very challenging event.”

Congratulations to our boys who represented the School and gave their best at this year’s competition.
