A month before they joined the semifinal session of this spelling bee competition, two students of Grade 6 had allocated their time to challenge their spelling accuracy by spelling some words on Mr. Caleb's vocabulary flashcards.
As the result of their serious endeavor, on October 8, 2016 they won the 7th and 15th positions out of 28 participants which have been chosen to be the finalists of this competition. In order to be able to win those positions, they had to compete with hundreds students from many different elementary schools in Surabaya. They had to spell 15 words which were being spelled by a native English teacher. As the result, Gio and Tim passed it out and went to the final session which was held on October 22, 2016, at Grand City Convention Hall.
As the topic "Learning Beyond the Classroom", participants had to spell words ranging from nature, galaxy & universe, animals, environment, and sports in the front of the 4 judges. Gio and Tim worked hard on the stage which finally brought up some impressive result. Giovanni got the Third Place and Timothy got the Seventh Rank of the Top 10. Once again, you give us pride. Congratulations!
