National Poetry Day 2019

Thursday 3rd October marked the 25th Anniversary of National Poetry Day and this year’s theme was ‘Truth’.

We encouraged students to get involved themselves by sharing poems that spoke a truth to them, either ones they had written themselves or ones they like via Twitter using #TellMeTheTruthAboutLife.

We then ran a competition for the ‘Best Poem’ and narrowed it down to four finalists who battled it out with some spoken word poetry on World Mental Health Day to speak their truth. Our Winner, Ella was decided by Mrs Twist, Miss Grimes and Miss Magee and won a copy of this year’s anthology of ‘Tell Me the Truth About Life’.
