As soon as it did, the chatter died down to silence. One by one, each student finalist stepped up to the microphone and attempted to spell the word given to them by one of the School Community Council (SCC) parents on the panel. Regardless of whether they gave a correct answer, the student body cheered on each student.
It was Sunningdale School’s second annual Spelling Bee on Friday, which was Family Literacy Day, a national awareness initiative that first started in 1999.
