Our 6 students did incredibly well and we had the following 4 students in the final round of 20 from the Lower North Island region:

  • Angela Montenegro
  • Nikaiah Basabas
  • Amanda Dharmasekhara
  • Melissa Chu-Fong

The top 4 spellers left in this regional competition go through to the National Vegemite Spelling Bee October 12th. Amanda Dharmasekhara was not only in the top 4 spellers, but came first overall. She was cool, calm and collected, and won with ‘narcissistic.’ Other words from the competition included: Endemic, Pagan, Monotonous, Rhinoceros and Esplanade.
