A BIG well done to the children that entered the poetry competition. They were so imaginative and we really enjoyed listening to them.
Poetry Competition entries.
A BIG thank you to our local poet, Rob Simpson, who came into school today. He was truly inspirational! Here are just a few of his poetry books.

National Poetry Day is the annual mass celebration on the first Thursday of October that encourages everyone to make, experience and share poetry with family and friends. Each year we come together because voices, words and stories help to bridge understanding in our community.
This year, National Poetry Day is on Thursday 5 October 2023.
‘Finding a complicity with how you feel, expressed more elegantly than you could ever express yourself, can be the most helpful way of making sense of your emotions and helping you to process them.’
William Seighart, founder of National Poetry Day
