    Poetry by Heart Competition

    Join us for the grand final on Thursday, 19 October at 7pm.



    The English department have now heard over 500 entries for the Poetry by Heart competition which is taking place in October. Every student in Years 7-10 took part in the first round of the competition and they found out this week if they have got through to the semi-finals.


    Over the next two weeks, we will be hearing the 96 semi-finalists in the Junior and Intermediate categories in a series of six heats, whittling them down to the best 10-12 in each category.


    Entries from Years 11-13 are still being heard and we will be selecting a list of finalists in the Senior category over the next week.


    The standard is extremely high with some really ambitious and inspiring choices made by the students and some fantastic original poems too.

    We are really hope that you can join us for the grand final on Thursday 19 October at 7pm.
