The Great Aureus Spelling Bee

This week students and staff took part in a cross-faculty ‘Spelling Bee’ where they battled it out to be crowned the best in their year, winning points for their faculties. There was a great turnout from all years, which is great to see from Aureus learners.

Congratulations to the following students for winning this year's Spelling Bee:

The Year 7 champion is Luke (7AMI, Banksy)
The Year 8 champion is Zoe (8LBA, Banksy)
The Year 9 champion is Tyler (9KPE, Malala)
The Year 10 champion is India (10RHA, Banksy)


Mr King who led the event this year, said “the politeness of the students were second to none, with all of them congratulating each other and commenting on how well each other performed”. 

This year's favourite words were: skedaddle, thingamajig, soliloquy, pterodactyl, pharaoh, gobbledygook and codswallop.

Teachers also took part in this year's event, with Mrs Pearce from the Malala faculty taking first place! 

The Spelling Bee takes place every year at Aureus and is a competition in which contestants are asked to spell a broad selection of words, with a varying degree of difficulty. The vocabulary items were taken from a broad range of subjects across the school.
