watched the movie “Akheelah and
the Bee” more than once and really
felt in my heart to implement this in
our schools. By the third time that
I’ve watched this movie, I was
convinced that I needed to do something
about it. One night I had a dream where
the Lord told me to do this in 3, not
sure what the 3 meant, but knows that
He is in control of this. A few months
later I had another dream to give birth
to this idea and thus our meeting today.
Just to emphasize that God is in control
of all our plans – “Jeremiah
29 v 11”.
Bee Reiger Park will allow the children
of Reiger Park in Primary and Secondary
Schools to compete against each other
with spelling in their current grade
and more to increase the competition
and giving them a challenge and opportunity
to change their current situation. The
competition will be fun filled, but
taken seriously. We believe that this
will enhance our schools and assist
our teachers as well as children with
their current spelling/reading problems.
The ultimate goal is for both children
and teachers to enjoy languages and
service that we will provide is to enlarge
the vocabulary of our children and have
a competition as regularly as possible
to assist with their current spelling
problems at school as well as in future.
The market will currently be our schools
in Reiger Park, but will not be limited
to Reiger Park only. This is the first
initiative of this kind in our community
and therefore, no competition currently.
spelling bee will be allocated and operated
from offices in Reiger Park e.g. the
schools. The stakeholders in this venture
will be our principals, teachers and
board of Spelling Bee Reiger Park. Spelling
bee competitions will not be during
school hours as this will interfere
with their current school operations,
but a proposal of Saturday mornings.
This will also allow the parents to
be part of this venture. To attract
the families and children there will
be serious prizes for their time investment
in this project. The prizes will be
attractive travel prizes. This attraction
will get the family involved and not
just the child partaking in the spelling
bee. Another factor to the prize is
to give our children and families that
has not travelled before the opportunity
to explore the world outside Reiger
Park and visit the attractions in the
areas that they will visit.
team that I’ve approached at the
moment is, Vincent Kaiser, the Reiger
Park Re-imagine team and Mr. Fisch.
This is not limited to the above.
financial plan will be to draft application
letters to the Government, education
board, banks, business in the community
to sponsor these events and the prizes.
We currently don’t have any cash
flow. For the kick-off or roll-out of
this trial-and-error phase, Divine Exchange
Tourism and Events Management, would
like to sponsor the prizes.
