Mia represented her school in the stage three section, where she came second to Christian Weber from Cathedral Catholic Primary School Bathurst.

Held in Wellington late last month, more than 120 students showcased their spectacular spelling skills. The crowd was on the edge of their seats when students underwent the major challenge of spelling unseen words.

“It was truly a sight to behold as these young wordsmiths rose to the occasion, tackling the complexity of the words with remarkable grace and composure. Their support for one another was a testament to the spirit of camaraderie that permeated the event,” said a spoke person for the Catholic Education Diocese of Bathurst.

“The 11th Diocese of Bathurst Spelling Bee showcased the incredible talent and commitment of our students. We are immensely proud of each participant for their hard work and dedication, and we congratulate them on their outstanding achievements. The Spelling Bee serves as a platform to inspire a love for language and encourages students to strive for excellence in their literacy skills.”

Mia was one of four representing Gilgandra at the spelling bee, including Mitchell Beaton, Jakirah McKenzie, and Lottie Duffy.
