Abrianna, Aiden, and Callan started us off this Monday on a steady note.

After one of the most exciting rounds of Last Kid Standing, it came as a surprise to everyone to have the rounds move so swiftly.

Abrianna Dhanessar from Curro Online, Xizhi Aiden Luo from Crawford Internacional Prep La Lucia, and Callan Black from Morningside Primary School began the week of the fastest rounds of Last Kid Standing spelling bee.

We saw Aiden effortlessly and gracefully win and make his way to the semi-finals!

On Wednesday, the round took a little longer than the previous two days with Aneesa, Ayanda, and Hayley participating.

Aneesa Allee from Allandale Primary School, Ayanda Ndimande from Montclair Senior Primary, and Hayley from Eston Primary gave us an exciting round with words like 'virtual' and 'enlarged' being too hard for Aneesa and Hayley.

So Ayanda got an ‘A’ for this round and got a seat in the semi-finals on Friday!

We finalised Friday’s semi-finalist squad with Siyavuya's win!

Barrie Speirs from Kloof Senior Primary didn't make it to the second round but Marcus Van Staden from Scottburgh Primary and Siyavuya Malusi from Hillcrest Primary did.

Siya knocked Marcus down in this round with the word 'marine'!

Finally, the semi-finals arrived as we went the entire three rounds without a winner.

 Aiden, Likho, Ayanda, and Siyavuya took each other on for the grand finale spot.

Take a listen to how that went:

But now a wildcard has been announced... 

We are bringing back the semi-finalists who fell short of a spot in the grand finale. This means that if your child or any of your favourite 4th graders were in the semi-finals but didn’t win and make it to the finale, they are getting a chance to play again!
