Taupo Spelling Bee 2016

On Thursday 8 September, five Te Mihi students took part in the Taupo Spelling Bee, hosted at the Great Lake Centre. Our students took part in the junior team event and the individual​ event. Jorja Morrissey, Anna Mounsey, Billy Hancock and Jed Walker were chosen as the team participants from our Year 5/6 spelling bee here at school recently, and Brooke Falconer was our individual representative. Despite not placing in the top three, our students gave it their best, represented us proudly and enjoyed the experience. Encyclopaedia is not an easy word to spell!
