Inter-House Spell Bee Competition
In the time and age of auto-correct, predictive text and spell check, the Inter-House Spell- Bee competition for the secondary students held at Edify came as a whiff of fresh breeze. The competition was organized in two categories: category 1 comprising the selected students from grade VI & VII and category 2 consisting of students selected from grade VIII to X.
The students participated with great enthusiasm and dueled through the toughest words to prove their mettle. Even the toughest words were spelt with unflinching ease by the spelling wizards. In category 1, the students of Earth House buzzed away to success and were declared the winners while Fire House and Air House securing the second and third prizes respectively. In category 2, Fire House won the first prize while Water House and Earth House secured the second and third prizes following a nail-biting tie-breaker.
The competition made students aware of spellings and the usage of many unfamiliar words. It was a wonderful learning experience not only for the participants but also for their peers and served to enrich the vocabulary bank of the students.
