Sharpeville, Vereeniging – The El-Bethel Worship Center in Sharpeville, next to Vuka Taxi Rank, resonated with the sounds of success as Phothiza Holdings proudly presented the second annual Frankly Spelling Bee Championship on March 21st. The spelling bee was a celebration of linguistic talent, drawing in thirty-five eager spellers from grades 6-10 all over the Vaal Triangle.

The 2024 edition of the Frankly Spelling Bee Championship witnessed an impressive attendance, with young participants hailing from Orange Farms, and schools across Vanderbijlpark, Vereeniging, Sharpeville, and Bophelong. The turnout was truly commendable.

“El-Bethel Worship Centre in Sharpeville, Vereeniging, is the most preferred venue because most of our educational events occur during school holidays. The church accommodates us, assists in preparations, and allows us to use their kitchen at no cost. We are immensely thankful for their partnership and the significant role they play in the success of our events,” commented George Lephoto, the Director of Phothiza Holdings.

The competition was a testament to the students’ hard work and Phothiza Holdings’ commitment to educational excellence. Parents, teachers, supporters and stakeholders filled the venue, creating a vibrant atmosphere of community and encouragement.

George Lephoto proceeds, “The Frankly Spelling Bee Championship is honoured to have the unwavering support of its esteemed stakeholders, without them the success story of the Frankly Spelling Bee Championship will not be complete. My team and I are grateful to Tshehlana Cleaning Services, Phuticentia Group, R’Ticulate Media Solutions and AllNew Media Solutions. We are forever indebted to them, their commitment is the backbone of our event’s success. They provide indispensable technical support, capture memorable moments and offer financial backing that is beyond reproach. We extend our deepest gratitude for their substantial contributions and the pivotal roles they play.”

Portia Mawai, a beloved staff member, served as the Master of Ceremonies, her voice guiding the spellers through each suspense-filled round. Her contribution was pivotal in making the event a memorable experience for all.

The highlight of the day was the award ceremony, where the top three spellers were honored with trophies, symbolizing their mastery of spelling. Their achievements were not just personal victories but also a reflection of the collective spirit of the Frankly Spelling Bee Championship.

Phothiza Holdings has once again set the bar high for educational events, fostering a culture of learning and curiosity. The Frankly Spelling Bee Championship has become a cornerstone event at the El Bethel Worship Center, inspiring the next generation of wordsmiths.

“With great anticipation, we are already laying the groundwork for the 2025 edition of the Frankly Spelling Bee Championship. Our vision is to scale new heights, expanding the event’s scope and impact. Central to our mission is the transformation of the local educational landscape, adopting a meticulous “One Child at a Time” approach. Strategically, we plan to remain rooted in Sharpeville, at El-Bethel Worship Center, nurturing our community’s growth until the natural progression calls for expansion.”
