This year, both students and teachers made significant efforts and it was evident in a successful event. All the participants showed their preparation and great appropriation of the rules and the way the Spelling Bee works. Each year the competition gets tighter and students have a higher level of expertise. The Director of the Centro Infantil, Alejandra Hernandez, opened the event with a beautiful speech. We had the participation of special guests and parents before the actual competition. The first round went pretty great and most students spelled their words correctly , passing to the next round. For the second round, only the five fastest participants went to the final round but most of them spelled their words correctly, evidencing their preparation and good level. The final round was exciting and these were the results:
1st Place: Isaac Ortiz Gaviria
2nd Place: Juanita Betancur Mesa
3rd Place: Agustin Cadavid Acosta
We congratulate our winners, finalists and all the participants of this fourth edition of our Spelling Bee, including parents and teachers. We hope it continues to be a remarkable opportunity for all the members of our community to get involved in the second language and challenge ourselves everyday. As we’ve seen, the Spelling Bee has become a perfect place for students to demonstrate how much they enjoy, grow and mature by being immersed in the second language.
