PAUL JENKINS REVISITS QEGS LIBRARY ON NATIONAL POETRY DAY 2017
We were delighted to welcome back to QEGS poet/author Paul Jenkins on Thursday 28th September. The day started off with Paige Feast from Year 7 sharing some of her poetry in assembly - then moving onto workshops for Year 7, Year 9 and Year 10. Those students who didn't have the opportunity to work with Paul made their way to meet him at lunchtime, with lots of questions being asked. A book signing session also took place.
National Poetry Day 2017 was a wonderful day of celebrations through poetry, with students creating some extremely powerful verse, sharing this verse and delighting in the day itself. There was no better way to celebrate the day than to host such a fun, yet also serious take on poetry - with the perfect poet/author in school to ensure that happened.
Thank you to Paul, to all our budding poets and also to colleagues and friends for their support.
