Two students of the St. Vincent Girls’ High School spelled their way to victory in the inaugural National French Spelling Bee Competition held today (March 20).

Tegan Deane and Maleah Joseph, both second-formers at the GHS emerged the victorious pair in the competition organized by the St. Vincent Grammar School – SVGS.

The St. Vincent Grammar School took the second place while the Central Leeward Secondary School, also known as the Barrouallie Secondary School took the third position.

Several other schools took part in the competition.

Following the event held at the Kingstown Methodist Church Hall, Tegan Deane, one of the competitors from the GHS pair stated that she and her friend Maleah prepared a lot for the competition.

“Preparation included us sacrificing our lunch and break periods to attend practice with our French teacher – Mr. Wynne,” the second-form student said.

“I feel that all our hard work has paid off and I am so glad that we came back with the win; returning the victory to the St.Vincent Girls’ High School,” Deane added.

Deane said that learning French or any other foreign language is very important because doing so can “open different avenues and can lead to different career paths and opportunities.”

A Spanish Spelling Bee competition was also held.
