Parkview Public School student Jacob Mills has been crowned the Riverina Spelling Bee Champion today after an intense day of Spelling hosted at Griffith East Public School.
Jacob and class mate Caleb Watson represented Parkview in the Stage 2 competition, with Caleb exiting in the third round of the competition before watching Jacob progress all the way to the State Final, which will be held in Sydney on November 16.
In the Stage 3 division, Parkview were represented by two very strong spellers in 2009 Stage 2 Champion Chelsea Axtill and 2011 Parkview Champion Amanda Lord. Chelsea did well to progress to the second round of the competition while Amanda put together and outstanding effort, finishing 3rd overall in the Riverina!
We congratulate all students on being such fine ambassadors for our school.
