We are delighted to report that our very own Sarah Wong has been award the title of National Spelling Bee Champion.
Sarah, who is in Year 10 at Dio, travelled to the City Art Gallery in Wellington to compete against the final 18 top spellers from around the country. She won after a tense 11 rounds of competition with the final winning word ‘stalactite’. Sarah takes away the spelling bee trophy and $5000 towards her academic pursuits, in addition to the coveted title.
Well done Sarah. What an incredible achievement.
