KPIS Inter-School Spelling Bee 2019
KPIS International School, Bangkok is pleased to announce the “KPIS Inter-School Spelling Bee 2019”. The KPIS Inter-School Spelling bee is open to a student of any nationality studying in Grade 1-6 in a school in Thailand.
This contest aims to encourage students to practice spelling, increase their vocabulary and develop their pronunciation, which are important foundational skills toward fluency. But beyond its educational purposes and benefits, it is important for these types of school events to exist – for students of different schools to come together and participate as part of a larger community, to share in activities and events, to see each other, make new friends and memories, and have fun. We believe this is a vital part of the school-years experience.
