Recently, all Year 7 and 8 OLMC students have been given the opportunity to participate in the Prime Minister’s Spelling Bee, a competition open to students across the country.

Students were challenged to spell 30 words independently via an online program. Many of the words were ones they had not encountered before so students needed to draw on a range of skills to decode and spell them correctly.

We congratulate Year 7 student Dania J. (7AAP) who achieved the highest score at OLMC for the first round of the competition.

In the next few weeks we will be notified of students who have successfully made it into the second round where they will have a further opportunity to display their skills.

We congratulate all students for adopting a positive approach to participating in this challenging activity.
