On December 9th, our Grade 5/6 students presented a SLAM Poetry Contest to culminate their exploration of the power of words. Each student performed two poems in front of a packed house of parents, teachers and staff. Students were scored by a panel of judges, who evaluated the students on elements of performance and poetic devices previously studied in two inspiring workshops with slam poet, Truth Is, who joined the Contest via Skype! These young students demonstrated confidence, talent, courage, pride and poise. Please click here, to view video footage.
