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.
