The Grand Final was held during the school assembly, lucky Friday the 13th! Well, lucky for Will Jacobson from Year 9 who took out the title of Spelling Bee Champion 2019! Well done Will. A big congratulations to our other finalists, Daniel Lackner (Year 10), Blake Downs (Year 8) and Ari Sullivan (Year 7). It was a great effort by all the boys.
This was followed by the much anticipated Teachers vs Students Spelling Bee, where our Year 12s battled four brave teachers. This is a much loved (often controversial and generally contentious) event. Ms Emmett, Mr Brown, Mr Marks and Mr Boyd stepped up to take on some of Eddies finest spellers; Luke Brien, Lukas Kalos, Dale Barrett and none other than our Captain, Rory Mackintosh. It was a valiant effort by all, however, it was the students who were victorious in the end.
I would like to commend all of the senior students involved in the Academic Portfolio for organising such a successful event that was fun, supportive and really engaged for the whole school community.
