Year 7 German and French Spelling Bee | Newsletter

On Friday 12th July our six Year 7 German and French Spelling Bee representatives created a bit of a buzz at the inaugural finals, held at King Edward VI, Five Ways School. Hot on the heels of other recent Handsworth successes, they managed to sting the opposition with their spelling wizardry. Tam-Binh Nguyen Pham was awarded 1st Place in the German section, with Mariyah Mia also on the podium in 3rd Place. Furthermore, Gwen Jones held her nerve to secure 3rd Place in the French section, to cap a superb performance by our girls. Competition was fierce, with three other schools represented. So, well done to our other participants: Neha Skaria, Zunaira Chohan and Amelia Binoy, who all gave a good account of themselves in the finals. Thank you to Five Ways for hosting the event and providing a tasty buffet lunch.
