All the bees buzzed into the great hall, the place that’s formally known as ‘”The Auditorium,” in the chilly afternoon of 8th May, 2015. It was the all-important, Annual S.B.C – Spelling Bee Contest. A contest that goes back donkey-years and played a vital role in stemming out unfavorable spelling ills!

The contestants (year 7, 8 and 9) were drawn from all the four houses: Impala, Gazelle, Simba, and Flamingo. Each house was represented by three participants , thus:

Out of the possible 60 points, the houses scored as follows:
1) Simba- 49/60
2) Gazelle- 40/60
3) Flamingo- 29/60
4) Impala- 24/60
At the close of business, Simba house emerged the winner of the 2014/2015 Spelling Bee contest. On the same note, the overall best Spelling Bee was Dhir Shah of year 7 who correctly spelled all the words subjected to him, scoring 20/20.

Perhaps you may want to know the most popular misspelt word in  history; President Lincoln , misspelt the word “okay” and instead wrote “okey.”  The congress chose to keep it that way to this day- to save face! sad world!
