JUNE 6th, 2017 - Following intense rivalry among standard three (3) students across the country, with participation of over three hundred and fifty (350) students from one hundred and seventy five (175) primary schools, Rio Claro Hindu School emerged champion of the 2017 EMASANCOM NATIONAL SPELLING BEE CHAMPIONSHIPS.

The competition was witnessed by an audience of over two-hundred and fifty (250) students, teachers and parents, with seventeen (17) finalists coming together at the Government Campus Auditorium in an exciting spelling showdown.

Commenting on the level of difficulty of the competition, specially invited guest Senator the Honourable Clarence Rambharat, in delivering greetings to the competitors, noted that he doubted whether “adults could even spell some of the words in today’s final”.

Minister Rambharat also told the audience that in his moment of prayer during the start of the Senate today (June 6th), he would say a special prayer for his Alma Mata, Rio Claro Hindu School, to emerge victors of the spelling bee.

Event sponsor, the Environmental Management Authority, its partners Sandee Communications and the ‘Green Fund’, extend whole-hearted thanks and congratulations to all Primary Schools across the nation that participated in the 2017 National Spelling Bee Championships. The EMA especially commends the winning schools on an outstanding performance:
• 1st Place – Rio Claro Hindu School – Srihan Chekuri
• 2nd Place- Dunross Private Preparatory - Angelo Harrigan
• 3rd Place- St. Peter’s Private School- Ross Ramkissoon
