Spelling Bee in Feng Shan
On Saturday, September 28th, three branches of Schoolhouse held a combined spelling bee. The three branches were all in Fengshan District: the Sin Jia Branch, the Feng Si Branch, and the Rui Sing Branch.
The format of this year’s spelling bee was different than in years past. Instead of students spelling words orally one by one, this year each student had a small whiteboard, and when the tester said a word, each student had to spell the word. Students could misspell one word; when they missed the second word, they were eliminated. This made the competition quicker, allowed more people to participate, and also was more fair.
The competition was divided into six levels. The winners of the level 1&2 competition were Ellie Chen and Eason Hung. The winnersof the level 3&4 competition were Bella Hsu, Lisa Wang, and Caroline Chuang.The winnersof the level 5&6 competition were Henry Lee, David Lu, Joyce Wei, Evan Hu, and Teresa Cheng.The winner of the level 7&8 competition was Tiffany Chou.The winner of the level 9&10 competition was Thomas Wang .And the winner of the level 11&12 competition was Peter Mai.
這次的比賽分成六個級數進行。第1/2級得獎者為: Ellie Chen及Eason Huang。
第3/4級得獎者為Bella Hsu, Lisa Wang, 及Caroline Chuang。第5/6級得獎者為:Henry Lee, David Lu, Joyce Wei, Evan Hu, 及Teresa Cheng。第7/8級得獎者為:Tiffany Chou。第9/10級得獎者為:Thomas Wang。第11/12級得獎者為:Peter Mai。
