Inter-House Spelling Bee 2016

The Inter-House Spelling Bee has been run and won for another year.

It what has become a challenging contest for our students, each House competes to spell a series of words in English.

The challenge is then to also translate each of these words into each of the five languages taught here at Mount Lawley - Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese and Korean.

The Japanese and Korean languages were particularly challenging for our Senior School students, as these languages only entered the school in Middle School a few years ago and have yet to make it into the Senior School.

Congratulations to our:

Middle School Spelling Champions - Forrest.

Senior School Spelling Champions - O'Connor

Overall Spelling Champions - O'Connor
