Junior School Poetry Evening

What an amazing evening of poetry we were treated to on Wednesday, 16 August. 72 Junior School students from Years 1 – 6 gathered to recite poetry from three categories, Australian Traditional Verse, Own Composed Verse and Australian Humorous Verse.

As in previous years, the standard of performance was excellent, making the job of selecting winners very difficult for our judges. I would like to congratulate the following winners and thank all involved for a wonderful evening.
