Learners show spelling prowess by cracking difficult words

Proud top spellers in the Grade Five category, posing with their gifts. Standing in the front row (from left) are Juwairia Hassim from Actonville Library (third), Ntokozo Ndaba from Leondale Library (second) and Haantebale Ratau from Alberton Library (first).

It was a fierce and intense competition among young word spellers who went head-to-head with their peers during the Spelling Bee competition hosted by the Ekurhuleni metro on September 15 at the Boksburg Civic Centre.

The learners gave the panel of adjudicators a tough time to conclude the results as the young ones cracked even the most difficult words with so much ease that many would consider a use of a dictionary.

The competition saw 36 participants battling it out on stage utilising South African English words.

The method of calculating the scores was a point format.

The learners were separated according to their school grades and the library they represented.

There were four participants for each grade.
