Tarporley High School students reach Foreign Language Spelling Bee Regional Final

On Wednesday 19th March, four Year 7 Tarporley High School French students (Katy Adkins, John Booher, Kizzy Whitehurst and Laura Youngs) travelled to Manchester Metropolitan University to compete in the North West Regional Final of the Routes into Languages Spelling Bee 2014.

During the First Round of the competition, contestants had one minute to accurately say and spell out as many French words as they could in their target language and from memory. In preparation, students had to learn 150 French words and had to compete in front of a panel of native speakers in a university lecture theatre full of spectators. This was a daunting prospect for all contestants, but the four students from Tarporley rose to the challenge and performed extremely well, impressing the judges and the audience alike.
Katy Adkins went on to be named as one of the top four spellers from her group and went on to compete in the second round of the competition against even tougher competitors and an even bigger crowd. Katy, once again, performed brilliantly under pressure and represented the school brilliantly.
Miss Pizzuto, the students' teacher who worked closely with them, said "Although our four Year 7 students did not progress to the National Final, we are incredibly proud of their achievements."
The students are now looking forward to sharing their experiences with their year group and next year, they intend to inspire the next round of Year 7s to follow in their footsteps by once again competing in the Spelling Bee Competition.
