About the Bee

The Premier’s Spelling Bee was introduced in 2004 as a fun and educational way for primary school students to engage in spelling. The program includes activities to encourage all students to improve their vocabulary and spelling and to promote literacy skills in combination with the English K-6 Syllabus.  At the bottom of this page you will find a quick guide to the Premier's Spelling Bee. Under the "more" button you will find the 2017 Premier's Spelling Bee photos and information. As well, various guides and resources are available below and throughout the other links on the website.
