The MEC for Education Ishmael Kgetjepe addressed delegates at a spelling competition which was held at the Park Hotel in Mokopane outside Polokwane on the 28 September 2016. They gathered for Provincial Government spelling competition which takes place annually.

Competitors are asked to spell words from lower level and complex once and they will be knocking each other out until they find a spelling bee champion to compete at a National level. The intention is that they should awaken the interest of the learners from Grade 4 to 6 and look at how they can improve the competition.

The MEC said, “I will like to congratulate everyone who participated and I saw the improvement from what I saw last year. I want to express my appreciation to the organisers who volunteered to help the learners and we can see the teachers who are doing good job. Language and spelling Bee competition have a potential to bring our community together.

Spelling Bee will keep their brain active and have confidence and not have stage fear. Learners are encourage to develop their spelling vocabulary and develop the public speaking abilities. This is more important in producing National young champions “.

Overall winner were announced where 3rd position was taken by Naledi Mashatola from Mopani District, 2nd position  by Lehlogonolo Maswanganyi from Mogalakwena District and  1st position gone to Patience Selamo from Capricorn District. The champion Patience Selomo received a smart phone for being a good speller.
