Poet Marco Gliori held the Year 5 boys enthralled as they watched him perform poems in the Middle School Library last week. Marco has been to BGS many times and is always a popular guest.
As part of the English program, the boys are learning about poetry and meeting and hearing a poet was a unique experience for many. Marco’s presentation included some of his own work as well as such classics as The Man From Ironbark. This rendition included acting out by volunteers from the audience who took on the part of barber, victim, local police and “cool dudes”. There was also a chance for them to learn about rhythm and other poetic devices.
As the boys left the Library they were inspired to begin their own poetic journeys.
