National Poetry Day – Staff Poetry Competiton Launched 5 September 2019

National Poetry Day is a UK-wide celebration of poetry taking place every October. Each year there’s a different theme and in 2019 the theme is Truth. 2019 is the 25th anniversary of National Poetry Day.

At Elgin Academy, we aim to celebrate poetry’s power to bring people together and will be joining in the celebrations, with a variety of activities.

On 5 September, our annual and very popular library staff poetry competition was launched and we are looking forward to this hugely.  Entries will be judged by the Advanced Higher English pupils on National Poetry Day.
