SouthSpell is an English based competition open to all schools in Southland. It is organised and run by staff from the Junior Campus. 63 teams entered, 40 in Year 5 & 6 and 23 in Year 7 & 8. Each team consists of four pupils. We were lucky to be sponsored once again by Number Works ‘n Words who provided all participants with pens and prizes of drink bottles, book marks and chocolate calculators. The competition was closely contested. James Hargest performed exceptionally well with the Year 8 team winning the competition. Our Year 7 team was placed third and our Year 7/8 mixed team was placed fourth equal overall.
Year 8 Team: Rachel Checketts, Madeleine Doherty, Blake Prattley and Jayden Prattley.
Year 7 Team: Finn Cruickshank, Emma White, Daniel McKenzie and Jackie Fetolofai.
Year 7/8 Mixed Team: Georgie Sunshine, Jake Meikle, Cade Lloyd and Lena Huia.
