We are thrilled to announce that the Aotearoa New Zealand Spelling Bee is back this year.

The Aotearoa New Spelling Bee progamme helps students gain a love of the English language. It is also an exciting learning journey for students in Years 1–10 to learn words that they can use with confidence for the rest of their life..

Our two programmes include te reo Māori words and are FREE to all schools around the motu:

  • The National Spelling Bee competition for Years 9-10 students - Registrations open in May
  • Spelling Resources for Years 1-8 students (open in June)
  • Teacher Awards worth $2000 each plus a trip to Wellington to see the National Spelling Bee Final (open in May)

Aotearoa New Zealand Spelling Bee is a charitable trust.
