Scotiabank sponsors Rotary spelling competition again

SIMPSON BAY–Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle has teamed up once again with Scotiabank to host the seventh annual Scotiabank Rotary/Rotaract Spelling Bee Competition for elementary school pupils ages nine to ten years.

The objective of this Spelling Bee is to improve literacy and enhance the pupils’ educational experience. With Scotiabank’s commitment, Mid Isle Club is confident that this year the Spelling Bee will be successful once again.

For the second year Mid Isle will be offering tutorial sessions to the pupils who will be participating. The schools will be able to sign up with Mid Isle members for the pupils to be assisted by Rotarians and Rotaractors to learn the words, which will give them a better chance to advance to the second and third rounds.

The Spelling Bee will take place at the Belair Community Centre on October 15, 22 and 29. The Spelling Bee is a fun, competitive way of teaching the pupils and improving their vocabulary.

Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle meets at Mary’s Boon in Simpson Bay on Tuesdays at 7:00pm.
