First and Third Place at The Spelling Bee

 A very big congratulations to Enfei and Nhi in Mlle. Jean-Gady’s Grade 3 class for winning 1st and 3rd prize at the 25th Anniversary Spelling Bee competition. They will represent Tumpane at the city championship for the primary division. Ninette, also in Mlle. Jean-Gady’s class, took 4th place in the competition.

Two junior division students, Lauren and Ebony, both in Mlle. Given’s class, finished in the top 10.

 

 

 

 

 

 In total, 20 students from Tumpane prepared for many weeks to compete last Sunday, and they did so well. A huge thank you to Ms. Agbaje-Ojo and Mlle. Jean-Gady for their roles in coaching and coordinating the event.
