Elvin spells its way to victory

Ark Elvin Academy defeated 11 other Ark schools to win the 2015 Ark Spelling Bee last week. Following months of practice by all pupils in key stage 3, six pupils were selected to represent Elvin: Fardeen and Krish from year 7, Adanan from year 8, and Caljah and Osama from year 9. It was a hard fought victory over three rounds, with Elvin narrowly beating Burlington Danes Academy - in second place - by one point.

Well done to all pupils involved, and to the whole of key stage 3 for their working hard together to learn their spellings; they really showed our value of mastery by being successful through persistent practice.
