The Spelling Bee was an extremely tense affair with words being spelt correctly that the students had previously never even heard of. The following all made it though to the final:
Ella Blackburn - 7D - Bronte
Briony Jones - 7C - Salt
Quinn Fisher - 8D - Bronte
Anna Delilah - 8F - Salt
Lewis Toothill - 9F - Salt
Erin Embleton - 9A - Bronte
The final got even tenser and concentration was etched on the students' faces as they tried to avoid an incorrect spelling. After an agonising 20 minutes of spelling, we finally had our winner! Erin came first with Briony in second place and Ella in third - a huge congratulations to all three!
