“WORDS CAST SPELLS, THAT’S WHY IT’S CALLED SPELLING.
WORDS ARE ENERGY; USE THEM WISELY”
On May 17th, SEK Los Valles hosted its “Fifth Interschool Spelling Bee Contest” held by the Primary English Department as a culmination of its annually activities.
Six prestigious schools participated in the competition: Unidad Educativa Hontanar, Colegio Intisana, Unidad Educativa Letort, Unidad Educativa Particular Isaac Newton, SEK- Ecuador International School, and SEK Los Valles International School.
Spelling words play an important role in the process of learning a language, it is an ability that will help students improve their writing, listening and speaking skills.
All the participants had an outstanding performance, they had done their h-o-m-e-w-o-r-k with responsibility and commitment.
The contest consisted in four categories: students from fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh grade were competing. They were all very excited, nervous and anxious before and during the competition, but at the end, they fulfilled their expectations.
The winners in this contest were: Daniella Montalvo, third place in the First Category, Alan Anchapaxi, third place in the Second Category, Sebastian Fernandes participated in the Third Category, and Paula Bastidas got the first place in the Fourth Category. We are very proud of our students and we encourage them to keep studying and improving their English skills.
We thank the School and teachers for their support and motivation they give to our students in their learning process.
