National Poetry Day 2014

National Poetry Day 2014 (Thursday 2 October) was a day when poetry slipped off its dust-jacket and was celebrated in school in a variety of ways. This year, on the theme of 'Remember', our activities included:

  • Performance poet Richie Brown, from The Lemon Tree in Aberdeen, worked with S6 pupils.

  • S1 pupils wrote poems on the theme Remember When..... These were read out and photos were displayed on our plasma screens.

  • Staff too entered into the spirit and entered our poetry competition, which was won by Mrs Forster.

    We had lots of poems on classroom doors, which helped to create a buzz about our National Poetry Day.
