A spell bee is a competition in which contestants are asked to spell a broad selection of words, usually with a varying degree of difficulty. We hosted the 3rd Annual Candor Spell Bee Competition today. 80 students from 10 schools participated in this event. These students were divided into 4 categories based on their grades. The event began with a welcome note by our Principal Mr Ghosh. This was followed by the final oral round. The competition was tough but the students out did themselves. We would like to congratulate all the participants for being sporty.
