Our Year 7/8 Book Club got off to a great start this term with a very hands-on experience for the boys. In the US, Poem in Your Pocket Day is celebrated on 30 April so, to tie in with this, we decided to run our own ‘Poetry in the Wild’ event, showcasing different poems in the lead-up to 30 April.
Each boy had to find four different poems, one for each morning, on War, Australia, Humour and Song Lyrics. They also had to find poems that would appeal to the Senior boys as well as the Middle School boys. The poems were written in chalk on the concrete pathway where many of the boys walk into the school, and this created a lot of interest, with many boys and teachers stopping to look and read as they made their way into the school.
