Rhythm. Crustacean. Somnambulist. That’s just to name a few of the fiendishly difficult spellings tackled by participants of the Park View annual Spelling Bee competition. 
 
After an in-form elimination round, savvy spellers from Years 7 to 9 were invited to the library during a thursday lunchtime in order to take part in the second stage of the competition. With 300, 100 and 50 achievement points up for grabs for first, second and third place respectively, it was all to play for! However, judges Ms Martin, Ms Hume and Mr Hamer were ruthless; one misplaced letter and you were out! 
 
By the end of lunchtime, only eight finalists remained, who then returned to battle it out in the library the following week. The atmosphere was tense as these skillful spellers navigated the most difficult of words with gusto. However, the silent letters and dodgy diphthongs eventually proved too much for all but three competitors. 
 
Congratulations to Anas in 7A - 3rd place, Oscar in 8A - 2nd place and Leonardo in 8E for winning this year’s Spelling Bee!
