Lumley Win the House Spelling Bee
Lumley won their second House event of the year in the first ever Spelling Bee. Students from all five Houses were asked to spell words as well as memorise long lists of words. Warkworth narrowly missed out after the final event involving Year 8. Warkworth won the Year 7 event, Alnwick the year 8 event and Lumley the Year 9 event. Overall, the results were as follows; Lumley 1st, Warkworth 2nd, Alnwick 3rd, Barnard 4th, Bamburgh 5th. Year 9 were particularly awesome as were the staff who attended in their free time. Also, thank you to Mrs Jackson for photographing the event. I look forward to doing this event next year and also launching a Modern Languages Spelling Bee competition with the MFL staff. Two real tests of memory!
