The Roman Ridge School is positively thrilled and excited to announce that Nii Odartey Elorm Manyo-Plange has been named First Runner-Up at the 2022 National Spelling Bee Competition, held at the Alisa Hotel in Accra on the 5th of February 2022. Nii Odartey, who is a Class 6 West student, performed excellently at the regional level and was short-listed for the National Spelling Bee Finals alongside 115 top spellers from schools across Ghana. After an exhaustive 12 challenging rounds of spelling, Nii Odartey prevailed as First Runner-Up!
It must be said that this is the fourth time Nii Odartey has participated in the competition and we applaud his crowning performance and his determination and commitment to achieving excellence.
