Manthan wins at Inter school Spell Bee

Delhi Public School, Nacharam hosted interschool Spell Bee Competition for grades 4 & 5 students on 15.12.17. Out of the 6 prizes given away (3 prizes in grade 4 category and 3 prizes in grade 5 category), we are proud to announce that Manthan won 3. Amogh & Hansini bagged 1st and 3rd prizes in Grade 5 category and Sampurna bagged 3rd prize in Grade 4 category. The children had to compete in five rounds to hone their intrinsic and latent abilities and demonstrate their inherent talents. The competition was enthralling as the children progressed from one round to the other. Round 1 was dictation followed by round 2 where they had to analyze words and solve a crossword puzzle. Round 3 had inflections and collocations and children had to choose the correct form of the word to fill in the blanks given. The next round was finding the correct sentences followed by the final round of testing general knowledge and grammar. Overall, the children had fun and it was exciting as they made some new friends from other schools and learned many newfangled words and spellings. It was indeed an ‘eduventurous’ trip for them!! We would like to thank DPS for giving us this wonderful opportunity.
