Sign Up For 2022 PM’s Spelling Bee

By Office of Susan Templeman MP - Federal Member for Macquarie
Posted: 3 Aug 2022
Blue Mountains and Hawkesbury schools are being urged to get involved in this year’s Prime Minister’s Spelling Bee to promote literacy.

Federal Member for Macquarie Susan Templeman said the spelling bee, hosted by Kids News, is a fun way for students to develop a passion for words.

“Spelling bees are a lot of fun, and they have wider benefits like helping children develop confidence and a real love of words and language,” Ms Templeman said.

“Literacy skills provide a fundamental base to learning other skills.”

Ms Templeman said schools in Macquarie can register to take part in this free competition by August 19 by visiting: www.spelling-bee.com.au

“I would love to see all our local schools getting involved in the Prime Minister’s Spelling Bee,” Ms Templeman said.

“It is a great way for schools and their students to develop a love for words and spelling, which helps to improve literacy, comprehension and critical thinking.”

The Australian Government has provided over $345,000 of funding to support the initiative.
