Thanks for including our school spelling bee winners in the Gazette.

Dear editor:

Thanks for including our school spelling bee winners in the Gazette.

To let you know, we were informed Feb. 8 three students from North Island schools made it to the top 60 on the island.

Dexter Lash-Burrows from A. J. Elliott, Katlynn Soper and Karrah Parke, both from Sunset will be competing at the regional Bee on Feb. 25 in Victoria.

Considering these are all Grade 6 students and the competition included Grade 8 — most of the finalists are from middle schools — this is an exciting result for us.

Again, thanks for your involvement in showcasing success in our schools!

Drew Neilson, principal
