It’s lovely when people get behind a great idea, and The National Schools Poetry Competition is no exception!

“I now understand what makes a poem what it is, and it isn’t just words rhyming with each other. It is about expressing what we feel. Your explanation between poetry and music also let me understand what it actually was. I have now become so much closer and interested in poems as I know now what it is and understand it.” 
Dominic St. George’s Catholic School Maida Vale, London

 

“Our students delighted at the opportunity to write poems on the theme of peace and to enter into a national competition. It was wonderful to see the work of one of our Year 7 students be recognized by an impressive panel of judges – she was absolutely thrilled. Taking part in the competition made our students realize that their efforts can be rewarded and that every opportunity is worth taking.” – Petrina De Gouttes, Sydney-r.Bardaglea

 

By coming to our school, you’ve inspired me and a lot of otherstudents to express our feelings through poetry. Since you’ve visited our school, whenever I’m downhearted or I’ve lost faith in myself, I always think about the quote you taught us that “the only thing holding you back is yourself. You’re an amazing inspiration” –Bobby“

I felt as if you were touching all of us with the effort level you put into your performance. It was like you were speaking a different language. In addition, your show was relevant to me because it made me realise that I wasn’t at peacewith myself and you really helped me” –Martino“
