Second-time winner faced rigorous challenge
KINGSTON: OWANDE IS not new to being a parish champion. He won for the parish of
SSt Ann in 2014 when he attended Tomlinson’s Christian Academy. The eighth-grader explained that preparing for the Kingston parish final this time around was more challenging. He started studying in May, from anywhere between three to six hours, and shared that it was rigorous, but he is happy about the result. Thirteen-year-old Brown is a lover of cricket and plans to try out for his school as soon as possible; his hope is to be a batsman for the team.
The Bee Spellers’ Coaching Programme had four spellers in the top five.
Sowande on winning: “I am really elated and I am happy to get this win, but I give it all to God, because He is the one that has caused this to happen.”
Coach on winning: “This feels excellent! Above all else, to God be the glory, all the time. The spellers came out and followed the instructions they were given. The feeling is awesome.”
