Spelling Competition Students

Club Stories

 What a memorable Saby Sebastian Memorial Spelling Contest! An audience of 72 were there to witness the spelling efforts of our 10 brave contestants. The audience included Assistant Governor Kaye Gauci, 52 parents, siblings, other family members, friends, teachers and Principals of the contestants, 15 Rotarians and guests and 4 special guests from Sunbury Downs Secondary College. These were 3 students from the ACE program and their teacher, Nicole. These students were responsible for writing the words for this years contest. The tough ones were all their fault! The Primary school contestants this year were Lucy - St Annes , Patrick  Bolinda, Holly  Kismet Park, Ethan  Sunbury West, Skye  Diggers Rest, Angus  Killara, Luke - Sunbury, Matthew  Goonawarra, Rhys  Sunbury Heights and Isobel  Our Lady of Mt Carmel. The Contest was chaired by PP Rob R and the Quizmaster this year was PP Damian. Damian masterfully enunciated the words and the students more master- fully understood him! Better yet they spelt the words well. There were ten rounds in total. At the conclusion of Round 10, which were unsighted words, there were 3 contestants, Lucy, Luke and Skye on the same score of 9 out of 10. The students were asked to choose a number and Damian would then say the word at that number. In the first round of tie-break, only one student got their chosen word correct and that student was Luke from Sunbury Primary. Acting President David then presented each contestant with their Certificate for being their schools spelling champion, a prize of $100 and an embroidered finalist cap. The winner, Luke, will be presented with a winners trophy, winners cap and a prize of $500 at a school assembly in the near future. Sunbury Primary will also be presented with the perpetual trophy and $500 for their literacy program. Thanks go to Rotarians Eva, Kerry, Denis, John W, Damian, Robert I, Merv and Special thanks to Marg Healy and Karen Vanderloo for being judges in the Contest again this year, and the ACE kids and Nicole for their efforts before the Contest and also helping during the evening. The event went smoothly due to the fine assistance given by these Rotarians, the staff at the Footy Club, One Stop Embroidery (getting the caps ready on time) and of course the contestants and their teachers and families for helping them to be well-prepared for the competition. Two of the Sunbury Downs ACE students were previous contestants in our Spelling Contest. Also worthy of note was the fact that two Ron Cook Scholarship awardees for being dux of their secondary college from this year and last year were Spelling Contest winners 6 and 7 years earlier! This is proof that Saby Sebastians vision to take the Spelling Contest as a motivator for students to develop literacy skills and strive for education in general has been working as he predicted. A master stroke Saby!
