Spectacular Spellers!

We have some very talented spellers at Melton! Our Year 2-6 Spelling Bee saw students tackle many tricky words and had the crowd cheering as the House groups competed against one another across different year levels.

This term, we have two Primary House Events scheduled and one of them is the Year 3-6 Spelling Bee House Competition. These House Events are organised to encourage team spirit, promote a sense of belonging and give students opportunities to represent their House in something that they enjoy or are good at.

The 3-6 Spelling Bee House Competition was organised in the hope to support our students’ growth in Reading and Writing through gaining competency in spelling and vocabulary, as well as attentiveness in listening to the words and accuracy in spelling the words. Two students from each House per year level competed in the competition where they spelled the words in English, with precision and efficiency. All student participants also helped collect house points for their respective Houses.

Here are the house winners and runner-ups:

First place: Stanway 76 points

Second place: Judson 68 points

Third place: Taylor 50 points

Fourth place: Carey 32 points
