The children were excited and eagerly took up the challenge of spelling 50 words that were read out to them, such as “catamaran”, “bamboozle” and "iconoclast”. We are proud of them as they put in valiant effort in representing the school.

We are also thankful for Mrs Magoo, a parent who volunteered to accompany the pupils there. She assisted the teacher in ensuring the safety and well-being of the pupils.

Great work, Team Edgefield!

RHB-The Straits Times National Spelling Championship 2016


On 26 Mar 2016, more than 1800 pupils gathered at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre for the RHB-The Straits Times National Spelling Championship.

Eight pupils from Edgefield Primary School were selected to participate in the competition, after having gone through two intense rounds of selection at the school.

At the competition, the pupils were challenged to spell fifty words, ranging from “leisure” to “haberdashery” and “guillotine”. It was an hour of gruelling session that they were being put through. We are proud of these pupils for their commitment and dedication.
Well done, Edgefielders!
