Did Somone Say Zarzuela?

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

The annual Spelling Bee championships were a gargantuan success with BVG students securing medals thanks to their creative abilities with words such as doorjamb, pullet, coupe and resurgence. (Fast fact: Zarzuela is a Spanish seafood dish!)

One of our students will be advancing to the Canadian Championship Finals in May.

Here are the results:

1st Place    Grade 2     Tanya Verma

Tanya Verma has advanced to the 2018 Spelling Bee of Canada Championship Finals on Sunday May 6, 2018 at the Toronto Plaza Airport Hotel. She will compete against 30 other spellers from across Canada.

A special thank you to coaches Ms. Wilson, Ms. Vu, Ms. McCleary, Ms. Bowles and Mrs. Nathani who were an integral part in making this a successful event. Their support over the past months has provided our BVG students with confidence and a solid foundation, as they continue to develop and master their spelling skills.
