St. Patrick’s School Spelling-Bee 2019

As every year, the school spelling bee was held in at the beginning of March.
It’s hosts, Ms. Murphy and Mr. Jeffers, encouraged all the eligible boys to attend the school spelling bee. They wanted everyone to try to be an un-BEE-lievable speller!
Practise lessons were held every Tuesday in Mr. Jeffers’ room at lunch break on commonly misspelt words. French words were exceptionally hard as they have unusual endings. After lots of preparation it was finally time for the School Spelling- Bee.
On the 5 th of March, lots of boys gathered in the halla and attended. It was very successful. The spelling bee went from two easy rounds where you could ask for the word in a sentence to help you understand the word, to a medium level where words got more challenging. Anyone that was left after this round entered the hardest level of spelling.
George, a 5th class boy, eventually, after a hard, lengthy battle, won the School Spelling Bee by succeeding with the word rhinoceros!

George McCarthy was then invited to the Eason’s Cork County Schools Spelling-Bee on the 13 th of March in Christian’s Brothers School.
Exceptionally, George got to the seventh round, just like the St. Patrick’s predecessor, Shane Ryan, when he was in the school last year.
George did the school proud with his outstanding ability with spelling.

 Thanks to Ms. Murphy and Mr. Jeffers.
