“Super Speller”
The 5th Hong Kong Inter-Primary School Spelling Competition 2019

Headstart Group proudly hosts Super Speller, a spelling competition, every year to promote primary school students’ interest in learning English, particularly in highlighting the importance of phonics, pronunciation, listening and spelling skills. It is a fun and exciting event for primary 2 to primary 3 students and has been receiving great numbers of contestants.

Objective of the event:
• To help young learners develop an awareness of good English pronunciation
• To improve their spelling and vocabulary building abilities
• To enhance their skills in correct English usage

Together, these skills and abilities will serve to establish in our learners a strong English foundation which will benefit them for their lifetime.

Major change for Super Speller 2019:

  • A new and bigger venue to accommodate more participants.
  • The competition will only comprise Primary Two and Primary Three categories in order to allow more schools to participate.
  • The competition will become team-based, two students in each team. One team per category per school, therefore a maximum of 4 students from each school to compete.
