Bee the best in spelling
BERRIGAN, Tocumwal, Finley and Blighty Public Schools will this fortnight compete with 17 other schools in the Riverina Regional Final of the 2011 Premier’s Spelling Bee.
A total of ten regional finals are being staged at 39 venues across the state between Monday, September 12 and Friday, September 23.
Local students will travel to Hume Public School during the two weeks to compete.
Students successful at the regional finals will then proceed to the state final in November, where the state’s best speller will be crowned. The Premier’s Spelling Bee encourages students from government schools across NSW to focus on their spelling in a fun and competitive format.
It was first launched in 2004 and has attracted record numbers of participating students ever since, with 115,445 NSW public school students signing up this year.
