The Inter-school Grand Finale round was arranged in 4 slots and starting from 9 in the morning it continued till 4 in the afternoon. The Spellathon Olympiads went one step further the traditional Spell Bee. It was not like a traditional and boring vocabulary or spelling test held on a Sunday! The main purpose of the competition was to help the pupil improve their concept of the English language, its correct usage, improving the spellings and increasing their stock of words. Mrs. Janaki Ventakramani, the Founder Director of Spellathon Olympiads said, “Spelling and Vocabulary are, in essence, two sides of the same coin. As a child studies the spelling of a word and its etymology, he will discover its meaning. As a child learns the meaning of the word, it becomes easier to spell. And all of this enhances the child’s knowledge of the English Language.”


Entertainment for the guardians 

The organizers of the Spellathon Olympiads were equally concerned about the students as well as the guardians. An amazing presentation was arranged to entertain the guardians of the participants. Four students of different age groups of the SIP Abacus Academy, Kolkata was called up on stage and asked to solve huge calculations.

In conclusion, the Spellathon Olympiads is not only a competition, but also a celebration of the English Language. Miss. Kiki Chatterjee, Business Head of Spellathon Olympiads, who has been around since the inception of the Spellathon Olympiads said, “This unique competition calls for the children’s problem solving skills into play in a game like manner. My experience of the last three years has reinforced my strong belief and conviction that the city Schools and parents appreciate new creative methods of engaging children with the English Language.” The success of the competition lies in the factor that the students loved it and turned up saying, “I would just like to thank Spellathon Olympiads. It will be greatly missed in the next few months and I can’t wait for the next year.”
