The ESU organized a new competition in the month of June for Students of Form V with a view to enrich their vocabulary and spelling.
A total of 65 schools expressed interest in taking part in the competition. However, for this first edition, ESU had targeted only 32 schools. A draw was therefore done to select the participating schools.
What is the competition about? : Find the appropriate word – Participants are given the meaning of a word. However the word is deliberately written in a disorderly way. Participants have to get the correct and appropriate word by re-arranging the alphabets.
The semi-finals and finals were held on Tuesday 14th June 2016 at College du St Esprit.
The four schools which qualified for the semi-finals are:
- Royal College Curepipe v/s Forest Side SSS (Girls)
- Royal College Port Louis v/s St Andrews College
Royal College Curepipe and Royal College Port Louis won their respective matches, and competed against each other at a very exciting Finals which saw the victory of Royal College Curepipe.
The winners of Royal College Curepipe were: Yardan Jumoorty (Captain), Khooshav Bundhoo, Rayyan Valaydon & Kelvin Appadoo.
All semi-finalists, runner-up and winners received prizes from the English-Speaking Union.
