Spelling Bee

PORG International School Spelling Bee

March - exact date to be confirmed.

This is a new event for our calendar, so our champion spellers have a chance to impress the judges, win prizes and be our first ever Spelling Bee Winner.

For those of you unfamiliar with the idea, a Spelling Bee is an event where competitors are challenged to spell words out loud. As they move forward through each round, the words become progressively more difficult!

There will be different levels for different age groups but each level will challenge the children to do their best.

As well as improving spelling through practice, a spelling bee is an opportunity for the children to stand up in front of their peers and respond to a difficult task. It helps to build self confidence and develop the ability to control emotions, such as nervousness under pressure.

The Oxford English Dictionary lists over 171,476 words in current use, so there are plenty to choose from for our final winner!
