Students from Wyoming’s Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic School have completed a four week poetry workshop.
Over the past month students in Years 4, 5 and 6 have been studying poetry with Catholic Schools Office Education Officer Gifted and High Achieving Students, Anita Burke, to develop their own creative writing skills and according to Principal, Bernard Cumming, many students have discovered their own inner poet.
“Over the weeks we saw not only a growing sophistication of skill, the use of a variety of poetic devices but a deepening of students’ love of poetry.
“The students surprised themselves as they continued to hone their poetry and excitedly shared this with their parents and teachers.
“The culmination was completing a poem which they could enter into this year Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Competition and we look forward sharing their poetry soon,” Cumming said.
