On Wednesday 28th November, three children represented Elmhurst Primary School in the New Vision Poetry Festival held at Vicarage Primary School. Ahsan, Zainab and Uzman Mohammed were selected for the festival following a poetry workshop hosted at Elmhurst School by Paul Delaney, children’s author and performance poet.
All three children had crafted their own poems, centred on the theme of World War One. The themes of remembrance and suffering which ran through their poems really struck a chord with the judges, particularly Ahsan’s which was awarded with a Merit.
Each of the children represented our school brilliantly; performing their poems with confidence and sensitivity. Fantastic work!
