ipoh echo issue 139, Y’s Men’s Club IpohAn English spelling contest was organised recently by Y’s Men’s Club, Ipoh as part of its on-going community project. The event, held at YMCA Ipoh, saw keen participation by 13 primary schools from within the city. A total of 39 students took part in the contest whose objectives were to improve the spelling skills of students and to encourage competition among them.

Udaya Banu and his team of judges had difficulty in picking the winners as the participants’ spelling skills were high. Sarah G from SRK Marian Convent won the individual category while Wong Jun Sen of SRK Methodist (ACS) and Rossan V of SRK La Salle were the runners-up. Overall champion went to SRK Marian Convent with the most number of points.

The club has other community-related activities planned for the coming months. Of interest is the Charity Walk for Healthy Heart and Jumble Sale on April 21 and the Children’s Colouring Competition on May 5. For details call K. Letchimanan at 012-5381939.
