The process of the Kindergarten Spell Master competition is as follows:
- Grade 2 students are given a spelling list to study during the August vacation and once they return to school in the 3rd term, the best five students from each class is selected to take part.
- At the initial round competitors are given two simple words with three letters each, to be spelt correctly, to pass on to the next round.
- At the next round the number of letters per word is increased and difficult words are added. This goes on until a winner is selected.
The winner is crowned “Spell Master of the Year” while the rest are given certificates and prizes at the Kindergarten Assembly.
