The 2018 National Spelling Bee Championships
The 2018 National Spelling Bee Championships is now open for entries. All primary schools, including independent schools, from Grades 4 to 6 are invited to register for participation in the Championships. Home Education learners and special schools are also welcome to participate.
The procedure for participation in the 2018 Spelling Bee is to complete the registration form, which must be stamped by the school and sent through to the provincial co-ordinator of the Spelling Bee. Parents of learners enrolled for Home Education are advised to request the principal of the nearest school to support and stamp the form for them. Upon receipt of the registration form in which names of the Intermediate Phase winners are entered, the provincial co-ordinator will organise a workshop for schools to explain the rules of the competition, as well as conduct elimination rounds up to provincial level.
The closing date for the competition is 31 May 2018. Participation in the competition is free.
