Inter House Super Spellathon Competition Grade IX-X ( 3rd February 2017 )

The Inter- House Super Spellathon, for grades IX and X was organized at Mayor World School on 3rd February, 2017. It was a quiz based on spellings, diction, vocabulary, pronunciation, books etc. There were four participants from each house and they participated enthusiastically to create a tough competition.


There were seven rounds including the Spell-Bee, Books and Authors, Idioms and Proverbs, Rapid Fire, etc. While the Spell bee tested the participants for the spellings, Speak right was based on pronunciations. Cues were given to them in the ‘Complete the proverb and idiom round’. There was a Visual round also, which was very interesting. In this round, the participants were asked to recognize famous authors and poets from the pictures shown to them. There were questions for the audience also and there was a fervent response by them. Most of the questions were based on the Spellathon sheets given to them throughout the year.


The Vice Chairperson Mrs. Neerza Mayor and the Principal Mr. J. S. Hundal were present to encourage and motivate the children. The students of Keats House bagged the first position. The second position was secured by Shakespeare House, followed by a tie for the third position in Dickens and Wordsworth House.


The Vice Chairperson and Principal Mr. J.S. Hundal congratulated the winners. Interacting with the students, the Principal said that such competitions help to evolve the love for reading amongst children and add to their confidence levels. He added that to inculcate the habit of reading and to improve the vocabulary of the children, such competitions are very essential. He even gave interesting statistics to gauge how the children had performed. The students found the competition very exciting and informative.
