House Poetry Competition

Over the Easter holidays students and staff took part in the house poetry competition. The theme of the competition was Resilience and entries could be based on real life experiences if they wished. Following some tough judging it was Caeli who claimed victory thanks to Jake in year 8 with his poem on his skateboarding experience. Aqua finished in 2nd place with an entry by Jessica in year 7 and Terra finished 3rd overall with an entry from Bailie in year 9 who was selected for the top 3 places. 20 bonus points were awarded to Terra and Caeli thanks to Mrs Dexter’s and Mrs Spilberg’s staff entries respectively.
