TSAT Medway Spelling Bee
On Thursday 15th December the inaugural TSAT Medway Spelling Bee was held at The Victory Academy. Teams from Rochester Girls’ Grammar, Holcombe Grammar and The Victory Academy went head-to-head in a nail-biting spell-off that saw only those with the strongest nerves survive, cheered on by the pupils of New Horizons Primary Academy.
In the early stages it was too close to call with Alexander Jordan and Courtney-Paige Reynolds of The Victory both taking second place in their rounds, whilst Andreea Marinescu proved that a spelling bee really is just a picnic by taking first place in her heat. Rochester Grammar ultimately triumphed overall, with a controlled performance from their Year 11 and 12 students, but we are immensely proud of The Victory team and the composure they showed.
Huge thanks go to Mr Still, Ms Agley and Ms Bradshaw from the Trust academies for their roles in organising the event.
The Bee will be back next year – we can already feel the buzz!
