Chloe is a busy (spelling) bee

THE Premier's Spelling Bee's first round began on an easy level for the kindergarten to Year three's. Round two proved to be slightly more difficult with words like solemn, parcel, and office. And the pressure was building as the words soon became more challenging, some being words most primary schoolers wouldn't know. The children stumbled over isolate, equipment, cautious, and peculiar. In the final round, students fell out over the silent letters of adamant, writhe, pheasant and nuclear. However Evans River Community School's Chloe Timms wasn't phased and emerged the winner. And if you thought the Year Threes had it tough, try ornithology, hierarchy, phosphorous, and exuberant which confronted Year Six.
