Twenty (20) pupils from various schools within West Coast Region over the weekend secured qualification to the TAKE-M Transformation Organisation national spelling bee competition.

The competition held at St. Peter’s Technical senior and junior secondary school brought together 32 contestants.

Angel Francis Okoye, a pupil of Gate Way Learning Academy expressed delight and pride at securing her place in the national championship. She added the competition was not difficult for her as she prepared well for it. She also expressed optimism of being victorious during the national championship.

Bakary Sabally, a teacher at Gate Way Learning Academy said securing their spot in the national championship means a lot to them as a recently established school.

He described his pupils as ‘super talented’, adding that he was proud of them and also hopeful they will be victorious during the national championship.

Landing Sanno, senior education officer at regional education directorate 2 in deputising for his director described the competition as well organised, adding that pupils gave their best on words assigned to them.

Mr. Sanno lamented that quality education is going down and organising such competitions for pupils would contribute towards improving their performance.

He noted that the more words students know the better their chances of being able to read and understand.
