Black History Month Poetry Competition

Black History Month Poetry Competition


To mark National Poetry Day as well as Black History Month the English Department launched a poetry competition open to all pupils to compose a poem in celebration of an event or a person of significance in Black history.

It was truly difficult to choose a winner from the entries submitted, and Mrs Asplin and Dr Kossuth agonized over the decision. Ultimately, first prize went to Amelia Orr (year 9), who wrote an excellent poem about the insidious role something as simple as a pencil could play in racial discrimination, and runner-up was George Haffenden-Boyce (year 7), who turned the Rosa Parks story into a hauntingly repetitive poem.

Thank you to all pupils who took part and we look forward to even more entries for our 100-word gothic story competition.
