Fourways High School performs at ATKV Spellathon
Every year ATKV hosts the ATKV Spelathon. It is a national spelling bee competition in Afrikaans. This year Fourways entered 5 girls. Two juniors (Kayleigh Vos and Monique Wasserman) into the Grade 8 to 9 category and three seniors (Caitlin Hamilton, Mckaylé Steyn and Tanvi Sujanani) into the Grade 10 to 12 category.
The competitors are given 1000 words to learn as seen words and are asked these words in the first 4 rounds. Thereafter the competition moves onto rounds of unseen words until the winner is determined. The teams spent eight months of training before the competition.
Congratulations to Kayleigh Vos and Monique Wasserman who both competed in the District round of the Home Language section and Caitlin Hamilton and Tanvi Sujanani who competed in the district rounds of the First Additional Language section. Congratulations to Mckaylé Steyn who competed in both the district and provincial round of the First Additional Language section.
