Port Clements hosts another exciting spell-off

  • Feb. 26, 2007 5:00 p.m.

Students at Port Clements elementary once again had a great turnout for their third annual spelling bee earlier this month, sponsored by the Port elementary parent advisory council.
The bee was very entertaining, especially the heated word spelling by the grade 3 group who had obviously done their homework. The teens provided their own brand of entertainment with many surprising spellings. The adult section was also well attended with a number of great local spellers showing their knowledge.
Everyone who participated received a treat thanks to a generous local donor, as well as warm applause from the audience. Thank you to all who participated in making this a fun event.
The winners were:
o Grade 1: 1st Bilal Issa, 2nd Emma Mitchell, 3rd Gavin Wilson
o Grade 2: 1st Willy Hancock, 2nd Matthew Melney
o Grade 3: 1st Dominique Hallberg, 2nd Jamal Issa, 3rd Haelie Wilhelm
o Grade 4/5: 1st Abigail Mitchell, 2nd Fergus Wilson, 3rd Jamie Johnstone
o Grade 6/7: Arielle Hallberg
o Teens: 1st Brian Marrs, 2nd Braeden Hitchcock.
