This term in Week 3 on Wednesday 2nd August, students from Years 3 to 6 are invited to take part in the annual Premier’s Spelling Bee Competition. This is a fun event that encourages students to engage with spelling and promotes improved literacy.
Parents and caregivers, we would love for you to come along and support your children on the day. Competitions are organised into two divisions and will run at the following times:
Stage 3 (Years 5 and 6): Upper Hall, 11:40 am Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4): Upper Hall, 9:20 am
The winners and runners-up from each Stage will be presented with a certificate at our weekly assembly the following week, and then move onto the regional finals in September. Word lists are available on the Arts Unit website by using the link Premier’s Spelling Bee and the password riddle. Junior words begin at Level1 and go to Level 5. Senior words begin at Level 2 and go to Level 7.
Well done to everyone who competed in our Premier’s Spelling Bee event today. We had over 40 Stage 3 students take part – our highest number so far, with so many spelling superstars our event was probably the longest ever! Congratulations to Zander, who was the winner of today’s event and to Chloe who came 2nd! Both students will go on to represent our school at the Regional Finals in the coming weeks.

Well done to everyone who had a go at our annual spelling bee today. It takes a lot of courage to put yourself forward and spell some rather tricky words in front of an audience. Congratulations to Dan who was our overall winner, Adrian who came 2nd and Elijah who placed 3rd. A terrific result! Thank you to Joe and Sarah who were great helpers with time keeping.
