On May 28th the English department held the 3rd Interscholastic spelling bee competition in the Salon Lazaro Cardenas. On this opportunity we had the pleasure to share this great event with five other schools who were highly motivated in engaging the contest to measure their level of English at spelling. In total we had the participation of Colegio Concepcion, Sydney College, Colegio San Buenaventura, Polivalente Padre Alberto Hurtado, The Wessex School and Sebastian School. All the participants demonstrated their skills throughout the competition having an exciting performance that left an impressed audience that enjoyed the contest to the fullest. This year’s competition gathered students from 6th, 7th and 8th grade (middle school) who in total were 36 contestants.
The glory was reached by 3 students:
- 1st place: Vicente Suarez, 8th grade student representing Sebastian School.
- 2nd place: Alina Belmar, 7th grade student representing Sydney College.
- 3rd place: Tomas Brevis, 7th grade student representing Sebastian School.
We would like to thank the schools who participated this year and also the teachers who committed and made of this event an awesome experience not only for fostering knowledge but also for sharing among schools.
Congratulations and see you in 2016!!
