Last February 12th, La Salle Benavente Junior High hold the First External Colegio La Salle Benavente Junior High Spelling Bee Contest. In this first edition, we counted on the participation of Colegio La Salle Puebla, St. Joseph School Periférico, Colegio La Salle Fromental, St. Joseph School Nacional and of course the host La Salle Benavente Junior High.
It is important to emphasize the hard work from the english academy, the junior high principal prof. Felipe Arenas and the Head Principal, Brother Rodolfo Vivanco Polidura to reach an excellent organization and extraordinary experience. The Spelling Bee Staff also wants to thank Lic. Federico González Hernández, Cambridge University Press Academic Consultant participating as pronouncer and Mr. Benjamin John Steward, Academic Translator participating as judge of the contest.
At Benavente, we are already working to offer participants a much better Spelling Bee Contest in 2021, not only as a contest, but also as an opportunity to strengthen friendship among different institutions.
See you in 2021!
