Dear Parents and Caregivers I hope you and your family have remained safe and dry…
Congratulations to six of our Rutherford juniors for competing in the Aotearoa Spelling Bee and being selected for the regional finals! They had to get over 80% of the first round correct. They are Anahita Madon, Luca Armitage, James Wong, Theo Meek, Vincent Nguyen and Devashri Srinivasan.
This group will compete at the Q Theatre in Queen Street on Monday, 23 August to hopefully win an expenses-paid place at the Wellington Grand Final in November and $5000 first prize.
The challenge includes English and Te Reo words, as well as some with Latin and Greek origins. Can you spell words like irāmutu, catharsis, and obsequious?
