The school introduced a spelling bee to help children gain competency over their vocabulary and allow them to excel at reading and writing. We noticed that due to excessive screen time, the reading culture of school aged children has drastically reduced and their literacy has been affected.
Spelling is generally taught in classes but we felt the pupils would be more proactive in learning if we brought in the concept of competition and involved their peers outside of the classroom so that they could learn from them. Every child from Grade 2 - 7 is expected to participate but with different level spellings depending on their grade.
It takes place every Friday after break time, between 10:30 AM and 12:00 PM.
At the first Spelling Bee the Grades competed against each other - Grade 2 against Grade 3, and so on and so forth. For the most part the higher grades did better than their lower opponents, except for Grade 6 and 7, where the Grade 6's were better spellers!. The idea was to get everyone in a competing mood for a start because they're not only learning how to spell for themselves, but for their classmates as well.

A strong community statement from Chilanga Cement (formerly Lafarge): "When our communities start to prosper because of our involvement and the Lafarge name becomes synonymous with constant unwavering commitment, then we are on our way to one of our greatest growth objectives: Building a better Zambia.,
Soon after an initial connection was made between Twitti School and Chilanga Cement (formerly Lafarge) in 2007 by Friends For Zambia, the company made a commitment to provide all the cement required to construct the new Twitti School buildings. The first delivery was made in April 2008, and deliveries continued until the school was completed.
