The English Department were delighted to announce the results of the Autumn Poetry Competition. Students had to take inspiration from our much loved 'conker', a true symbol of autumn in Ireland. The simple but powerful Charles Simic poem, 'Stone' imagines what it is like to be a stone. Modelling their ideas on this poem for inspiration, students applied this concept to the conker.
We had many beautifully crafted poems making decisions difficult for the four teachers who judged. Thank you to everyone who entered. Congratulations to all our winners who received a selection of novels as prizes. A special mention goes to Tori for her poem picked as the standout entry.
