Success at TCI National Spelling Bee 2017
We would like to send our congratulations to Jayla Valsaint who showed great determination and courage in the TCI National Spelling Bee 2017.
We are very pleased to announce our Grade 6 student made it through to the second day of the primary school spelling challenges and finished overall in 6th place; a fabulous achievement.
In preparation for the TCI National Spelling Bee Jayla studied approximately 1000 difficult spelling words!
We also had a Spelling Bee winner from the International School in 2015, see blog
