The spelling bee is a not for profit program created to help children develop a love and appreciation for words and language. Through the spelling bee; spellers build their vocabulary, spelling skills, language understanding and join a community of word nerds. The objective of the competition is to enhance the spelling and literary skills of children by encouraging them to explore the English language, expand their vocabulary and improve their communication and comprehension skills. The Competition was held only in English. The prises won were (Oxford Dictionary, Trophy, Certificates and medals). We had top 10 best spellers; Masoeu Mabeta from Sekgothadi Public School took 3rd position, Mokoena Palesa from Makeneng Primary 2nd position and Mahalapa Mpho Grade 5 leaner from Makeneng Primary was the Championship of SAAYC Free State Spelling Bee Competition 2016 held at Makeneng Village QwaQwa.
