Kiwi Spelling Bee

The Kiwi Spelling Bee helps students improve spelling, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts, and use English correctly.


Check out the Kiwi Spelling Bee.

The KIWI Spelling Bee 

The aim of the spelling bee is to help students improve their spelling, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts and develop correct English usage that will inspire confidence and a love of language that lasts a lifetime.

These are no ordinary spelling bees. In addition to the usual spelling, these competitions will include synonyms, antonyms, grammar and vocabulary! The question types will be multiple choice, fill in the gaps and short answer. The competitions have been designed by experienced New Zealand teachers.

There will be two competitions aimed at Year 5-6 and Year 7-8 students.

NOTE: Students will need to have their own individual headphones/ air buds to listen to the audios throughout the competition.
