I was recently in the Spellathon which took place on Wednesday, March 2nd
with my team mates Michael Kelleher, Jack McCarthy and Danny Murphy. Our
class sent in tow other teams with 5th class sending in one. All
the Ovens teams worked hard and I would like to thank Mrs. O’Callaghan who
held a mini-spellathon on the day for all four teams and then held
Spellathons for our team and the successful 5th class team. The
Spellathon final took place on March 16th at . The big day arrived and you could feel the tension in
the air. You could cut it with a knife. All teams wanted to win and knew
there was no room for error. After the first round the tension grew even
greater with most teams getting ten out of ten. As the rounds progressed
weariness began to show with some teams making silly mistakes. Eventually
winners were crowned with our 5th class coming in 5th
the final we got 69 out of 100 and came ninth. Fifth class got 80 out of 100
and came fifth. They won a DVD player for the school.
