Spelling Bee Competition

In November 2018 the in-school Spelling Bee competition took place. Each 5th and 6th class sent their strongest spellers to participate. The competition took place in room 1A with Ms. Shaw and Ms. Kieran. It had many nail biting moments until we were left with three very strong spellers.


Kevin Howard, Josh Hanson and Niall O'Mara.


The three boys have attended many practice sessions with Ms. Shaw and no doubt have put in many hours of practice at home. 


In order to ascertain who would go forward to the up and coming Eason's Spelling Bee competition and the North Dublin Spelling Bee competition another tense final was held in February 2019.


The three boys fought a valiant battle but alas we had our two finalists.


Kevin Howard will represent the school at both the Eason's Spelling Bee competition on April 2nd at 10.30 in the Carlton hotel (Dublin Airport) and the North Dublin Spelling Bee competition on April 5th in Sutton Park School.


Josh Hanson will also represent the school at the North Dublin Spelling Bee competition. 


Best of luck to Kevin and Josh. We would also like to thank Niall O'Mara for his hard work and all of the other boys and girls who took part in this years in-school Spelling Bee competition.


Could you be the next great speller in Pope John Paul II ?  


Of course you could. Start your practice now by working hard on your class spellings and reading lots of wonderful books.
