Warilla High School has finished third in Australia and New Zealand's biggest literacy competition - 'Word Mania'.
Word Mania involves thousands of students' engaging in a series of three minute long, online, word building games using 15 randomly generated letter tiles - forming words that gain the students points.
While the competition was open to all Year 7 and 8 classes at Warilla High School, the students from the school's differentiated Stage 4 programs, 'Core Skills Program' and 'Core Academic Program' embraced the challenge.
The Year 7 group placed eighth overall, with the Year 8 group finishing third.
A school spokeswoman said they were looking forward to spending their $250 winnings on resources to further improve their literacy.
"Warilla High School is extremely proud of all of the students who participated and Mrs Jaimie Goucher who worked tirelessly to motivate students and coordinate the school's participation in the competition this year," the spokeswoman said.
