Desmond College Transition Year students mentored First Year students in a vocabulary blitz initiative by creating interactive vocabulary games, a vocabulary rich environment and running vocabulary activities in classes facilitated by English teachers.

The busy week culminated in the hosting of a very successful ‘word of the day’ and a highly competitive ‘Spelling Bee’ spell-athon challenge in the new school library, where victorious First Year spelling winners were crowned.
