Marymount student, Teiva, has come first place in the Annual Paris Spelling Bee! After months of preparation, Teiva (grade 6) and Saachi (grade 5), proudly represented Marymount by competing at the 8th Annual Paris Spelling Bee Oral Final Round on Sunday, March 20th. The event, sponsored by Gifted in France, was held at the American Library in Paris. The challenging competition involved 21 students from over 14 different international schools across Paris and the surrounding suburbs. Students were demanded to prepare from a high-caliber vocabulary list of over 500 words, ranging from anachronism to peccadillo! Our students are to be commended for not only their rigorous study and preparation, but also the excellent concentration, patience and sportsmanship they displayed throughout the entire event. After an intense four hours of spelling, Teiva Jabbour captured first place in the competition.
Congratulations to both Teiva and Nirali for exemplifying the FALCONS spirit!
