On Monday 25th June 2018, the Year 7 school winners from fifteen OGAT schools took part in the MFL spelling bee at Sheffield Hallam University. Four students from Outwood Academy Portland took part and did themselves proud. The work and preparation the students put in was absolutely amazing and their performance in front of a large audience of students, University staff and parents was a big achievement.
Chloe C and Abi H competed in French, spelling as many words as they could in one minute and Erin M and Connor P took part for Spanish. Connor P made it through to the final round showing unbelievable focus. In the final round he was nothing short of brilliant and he not only came first for Spanish but he also came first across three languages to win the whole competition and to become OGAT MFL Spelling Bee Champion! We are all very proud of his achievements!
We now have expert spellers ready to train our new Year 7s next year and be ambassadors for languages!
