Spelling bee answers prayers

IT was a dream come true for Morningside High School pupil Natasha Qaga when she won the Unako Spelling Bee competition in Port Elizabeth yesterday. Natasha, 18, will have the opportunity to study civil engineering next year as the prize offers full tuition at NMMU for four years.

Gelvandale High School matriculant Taron Welman, 18, in second place, will have half her NMMU tuition paid. She was followed by Lihleli Kutase, 18, of Walmer High School, who will get a welcome 15% discount on her NMMU studies.

Natasha, who has yet to apply to NMMU, wants to use her September report to apply. She said: "This is just unbelievable. My prayers have been answered."
