Kicking off the Interhouse competitions this year was the Chauncy Spelling Bee. Every form group across years 7 – 11 took part; choosing two candidates to represent them on stage in front of their year group. This fantastic competition has been running for two years and the crowd interaction and encouragement for the participants is second to none. With a whopping 200 points up for grabs for the winning house the friendly rivalry was clear to see. The courage shown by the students taking part was impressive considering the size of the audience and the pressure placed upon them; spelling words such as cantankerous, rambunctious and surveillance. This term’s event was another huge success with the following winning students claiming the prize of Spelling Bee Champion:
Year 7 – Alex Gaffney, Year 8 – Linda Bello, Year 9 – Simone Georgy Sam, Year 10 – Jakin Tan, Year 11 – Rosa Alcantara.
