Wins in regional spelling bee final
Schools on the Peninsula have come out on top at the 2017 Central Coast regional finals of the Premier's Spelling Bee.
The competition was won by Umina Beach Public School's Neeve Davies.
Neeve secured the win in Round 7 of the competition when she successfully spelt the word 'familial'.
She will now compete in the state finals of the spelling bee held in Sydney.
Her win also secured Umina Beach Public School a free subscription to Macquarie Dictionary online.
Ettalong Public School also had an excellent showing at the regional finals, taking out second place.
Year 4 student Maria Niewiadomski placed second out of 42 students in the competition.
