Pre-Prep Poetry Week

Pre-Prep Poetry Week

The boys returned from their Easter holidays to find themselves in the throes of Poetry Week.  On Tuesday, they explored the role that rhythm plays in poetry, which tied in nicely with the visiting poet, James Carter, who on Wednesday led fun, imaginative and productive poetry workshops.  During our Book Swap, the boys thoroughly enjoyed changing their well-read book donations from home for new and exciting stories.  The week culminated in a colourful dress up day and an outstanding performance by Philip Grieve.  Mr Grieve teaches in the English Department and is also a renowned spoken word poet.  160 boys left the Pre-Prep as poets, and I bet they didn’t even know it…
