On Wednesday 26 September, the school went to the hall in eager anticipation to see if their house would win the Wynberg Girls’ High 2012 Spelling Bee. Each house had a team of representatives. The competition consisted of various rounds, starting with a fairly easy round and slowly getting more challenging. The nervousness and excitement was evident on each competitor’s face as it was hoped that Khadija Brey wouldn’t ring the bell signalling their failure to spell the given word correctly. As contestants were disqualified their audience became more and more excited.

The highlight of the event was when the teacher’s had the chance to spell and we saw that even they don’t always get everything right!

There was a great effort from everyone and Kirsten left with first prize, with a win from Kristen van Graan, in Matric.
