The Bhavans GCC Spell Bee which crossed the borders of the Middle East and ventured into India has now been christened Bhavans International Spell Bee. The grand finale of the first edition of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s International Spell Bee, a spell-the-word contest, was held at Indian Educational School, Kuwait in the most majestic manner on 09th February 2019. The contest happened in six different centres simultaneously through the video conferencing mode. The chief guests, Dr. Shobha Vaddadhi, Director, Global English Indian School, Kuwait and Shri Basant Kumar Mohota, Chairman Hinganghat Kendra, India graced the day of grandeur in Kuwait and India respectively. After three hours of brain racking, the contest of letters came to an end with a stupendous bee dance by the charming students of IES. Mr. T. Premkumar, principal, Indian Educational School, Kuwait declared the final result of the Bhavans International Spell Bee Championship. Each champion took home $1500, a trophy and a certificate.
