For National Poetry Day this year, the 2nd of October, all Tynecastle High School students were given the opportunity to view a presentation on the life and work of the World War I poet Wilfred Owen. They were then invited to take part in a poetry competition on the theme of ‘Remembrance’. There were an impressive 58 entries and the standard was so high it made deciding on the winners a very difficult task indeed.
Eva in 2B1 was the outright winner for her outstanding poem. Raymond in 1B2 and Robyn in 2B2 were both highly commended.
A display of student entries can be viewed on the noticeboard immediately outside the library. Well done to all of our students who took part!
