Episode 7: The Poetry Festival
This year saw the return of the Mountbatten Poetry Festival. A proud tradition stretching back over fifty years, the poetry festival showcases students’ original poetry compositions.
Year 7s were tasked with creating an original poem inspired by the Romantic poets.
Students chose to write about the themes of nature, the imagination, childhood and liberty. Their poems cover diverse topics from a love of trees to the life of a homeless child.
We are very proud of our wonderful poets and we hope you enjoy listening to their performances!
