Spelling Bee Grand Final Winner!

​Congratulations to School Captain, Corneels de Waard (pictured right) who has won the 2012 Courier-Mail Spelling Bee competition. This makes him the best in Queensland!  Twenty-five students, Mrs Bladin and Mrs Holley had the privilege of watching the nail-biting Grand Final at Dreamworld as Corneels competed against the four other Grand Finalists in the Years 8-12 category. Ten words were given over three rounds with students eliminated in each round. Words such as ‘leucocyte’, ‘extemporaneous’ and ‘etiolated’ provided a challenge for the competitors. Corneels proved himself up for the challenge. He and his supporters celebrated by spending the remainder of the day enjoying the attractions at Dreamworld.
