The maiden edition of Kingsley Spelling Challenge aimed at supporting learning to read and write (literary) for primary school pupil in the Abuakwa South Municipality in the Eastern Region, Ghana has been launched.
The Kingsley Spelling Challenge is an initiative by Mr. Kingsley Agyemang, the dynamic Registrar of the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat.
Launched in September 2021, the maiden edition of the Kingsley Spelling Challenge expected to take off from Saturday, October 23, 2021.
The literacy programme will feature twenty-seven (27) from the Abuakwa South Municipality who will
compete amongst themselves in a highly competitive contest.
In a Facebook post sighted by unitedshowbiz.com.gh on the handle of the Executive Producer of the quiz, Mr. Kingsley Agyemang, he revealed,
“Less than a month after launching the Kingsley Maths and Science Quiz, I, once again today, launched a Spelling Challenge for primary schools in the Abuakwa South Municipality where I underscored the importance of not just knowing words or knowing how they are spelt but also knowing how to use them in sentences at an early age. This, I believe, is a big predictor of the child’s future success.
Research shows that at the age of 12, children are expected to be familiar with 50,000 receptive vocabularies (words they can understand). With this in mind, it’s well worth making an effort to build the vocabulary of our children and spelling is just one of the ways we can do that. This is what the Kingsley Spelling Challenge stands for – to build the vocabulary of school children in the Municipality.
Some 27 primary schools are earmarked for this maiden edition which is expected to take off from October 23, 2021.
27 primary schools within the municipality will compete amongst themselves and we expect a highly competitive contest when the challenge begins on October 23, 2021.
To this end, I call on all stakeholders, to kindly get involved when the competition kick starts.”
