KUALA LUMPUR: On 18th November 2017, Good Shepherd Church Setapak had successfully organized the second Spelling Bee competition for the underprivileged children lacking in English proficiency. Due to the good response and positive feedback received from the previous year’s competition, the Parish priest Rev. Fr. Christopher W Soosaipillai gave his blessings to conduct this event again this year. The objective of this competition was to provide an opportunity for the students to enhance their spelling skills and to expand their vocabulary in a fun and competing manner.
37 children from Standard 1 to Form 3 participated in this competition. As compared to last year, the number of participants has increased. With much enthusiasm, the competition became intense as many of the participants were able to spell all the words correctly and it took a few exciting rounds of tie breakers to determine the winner from each age group. It was truly a proud moment for everyone to witness the participants displaying a marked improvement in their spelling skills. While waiting for the results to be announced, the parents were invited to participate in some fun games prepared for them.
After the event, all the parents, children and teachers were invited to a luncheon. The parents were very proud of their children and appreciative towards the teachers for their time and effort. With the success of this year’s Spelling Bee Competition, Good Shepherd Church English teachers are even more motivated and committed to work towards helping more underprivileged children to improve their English proficiency.
