The competitions included all Communications students in Years 8, 9 and 10. The audiences were simply spellbound, as the concentrated spellers created the magic on each of the days.
The first Spell Battle commenced with the Year 9s on Monday morning, audiences cheered as Christopher George earned the title of top speller. It was a close competition, with tension building until the final moments. On Tuesday, the Year 10s brought their best game to the Learning Hub court, the crowd anxiously watched as Koebbie Marius brought home the prize for 1st place. Finishing off Playford IC’s fantastic spell showdown on Thursday, were the Year 8s who held the final Spell Battle.
