The students of the SLO® decided to start up a Spelling Bee Club in order to select top students for the upcoming SABIS Stars regional event. Seventy students from grades five and six competed for a chance to be one of Sharjah's SABIS Stars Spelling Bee Representatives.
The qualifying event started on the morning of Saturday, October 3rd 2015. when all competitors gathered in one school hall. Each competitor was given a random word to say, spell out, then say again, as per the general rules of Spelling Bee.
After two complex rounds, the top twenty-four students were chosen. With the help of their designated mentors, the students will attend the SABIS Stars Spelling Bee Competition in March 2016.
