Well done to 5th Year student, Ryan Baker, who won Belvedere College's Spelling Bee Competition on Thursday, 30th March.

Huge congratulations to Ryan Baker (5th Year) who was the winning finalist in Belvedere College's Spelling Bee Competition 2017 on Thursday, 30th March. It was a nail biting final round whereby Ryan had to spell his own word and that of his opponents. The spellings were very challenging ranging from 'pulcruidinous' to 'pandemonium'.

 Ryan displayed admirable presence of mind, as he broke down his words into coherent syllables, while being watched by a hushed auditorium of over two hundred people. Congratulations to our other students who also competed in today's spelling bee: Cormac Kelly, Jane Henry, and Rachel Murphy. They competed against students from Sandford Park, Gonzaga College, Muckross Park, St Andrews, Castlenock College, St Marys, and Belvedere College.
