National Poetry Day

Rhyming couplets and witty verse were the order of the day as students celebrated the 100th National Poetry Day.

A limerick competition, timed tongue twister and poetry recitals were part of the activities organised by the library team to put a spotlight on the literary art.

Year 7 student Dylan Cottell, who has performed at literary festivals, read The Eagle by Alfred Lord Tennyson.

He said: "I like to read poetry aloud so I have really enjoyed the library events."

In all forty students from across all the years, have written limericks, which will be judged by Dr Campbell tomorrow.

The winner of the timed tongue twister will also be announced.

Librarian Amy McKay said: "National Poetry Day is a good time to put a focus on poetry and show that it can be fun."
