Scrabble

Within the last academic year our Scrabble Club had undergone many changes.
Ms. Marin, who was the Scrabble coordinator for as long as I have been in the school and who has given tips and practise techniques to lead the team to its achievements thus far, retired last year September. This left myself, Brendan Hatch, as well as Stephen Hernandez as captains and Ms. De Silva as as the new co-ordinator to steer the scrabble ship into new, deeper water . Admittedly, it was quite a challenge for Stephen and I to balance our CXC preparation with recruiting new members, teaching and training them for tournaments as well as all the paper work involved but we persevered.

Despite all the hindrances, we managed to get some enthusiastic members and participate in the National Secondary Schools  Scrabble Championships 2010 where we performed quite well. Almost everyone made it to the finals with myself placing 1st, and Nathaniel Edwards placing 2nd in the north zone senior category. It was a memorable and rewarding  experience for us all.

Furthermore, our form 1’s participated in the First Citizens National Schools Scrabble Tournament this year and gained much experience and new friends which would lead them to more successful ventures in the National Secondary Schools competition.
I thank all those who participated and continue to do so and if anyone else would like to join please see Ms. De Silva, Stephen or myself for more details.

  1. There are a few grammatical errors which should be corrected.
    1.”…..who had given tips and……” (replace has with had)
    2.”……to lead the team to its achievements….” (replace their with its)
    3. Ms. De Silva would be the new co-ordinator not captain. (assuming that she replaced Ms. Marin)
    4. “Admittedly it was quite a challenge for Stephen and me….”(replace I with me)
    5. “…and participated in the National Schools…” (past tense of participate)
    6. “……gained new friends and much experience which would lead them…..” (switch the order of “new friends” and “much experience”)
