< Back to News
Melville SHS has won the national Word Mania competition finals for Year 7. The Gifted and Talented class had to race against the clock on their iPads to build as many words as possible in three minutes. The class competed with more than 2,000 other schools around the country. During the competition some 63 million words were built Australia-wide.
The students, with teacher Ms Madeleine Jennings were very excited to receive a $1000 cheque and trophy from Paul Hughes from LiteracyPlanet, who presented the award in week 9.
