Four Finalists from Scrabble Club @ BRPS emerged at the Online Inter-school Scrabble Competition

Virtual Scrabble trainings held during the COVID-19 pandemic looked very different indeed, but that did not deter our Scrabble Club @ BRPS from resuming their training online with their experienced coaches, and participating enthusiastically during the training sessions.

In November 2020, six of members of the Scrabble Club took part in the Online Inter-school Scrabble Competition organized by Mattel. Amongst them, four emerged as finalists, with Mikhael and Dusan coming in 1st and 2nd Runners-up respectively. Mikhael shared, “Although I won four rounds and lost one, I still managed to come in second in the competition so I am very proud of myself. Through the whole process, I learnt many strategies to win and to persevere especially when I met a strong opponent.”

Amongst the 32 players selected from various primary schools to play in the Final Round of the competition, our students performed remarkably well to achieve the following results:

Mikhael (4T – 2020) – 1st Runner-up

Dusan (6T – 2020) – 2nd Runner-up

Brandon (6T – 2020) – 4th Runner-up

Melody (4S – 2020) – 18th Position

Hannah and Aggie (P5 – 2020) – Participants

Well done to Scrabble Club @ BRPS! Their spirit of adaptability and perseverance through the training and competition inspires all of us.
