HCH Poetry Competition

The English Department held a school-wide Poetry Competition on Tuesday 21st March – World Poetry Day.

After an overwhelming number of entries – three times as many as last year – the winners were chosen. As all entries were anonymous it proved tricky to track the award-winning poets down, but we can now confirm the joint winners are:

Jasmine (Y12) – ‘The Calm Before’
Charles (Y8) – ‘Reality’

The judges also gave an honourable mention to Asimina (Y9) for her poem ‘Rouge Balloon’ and the anonymous poet who penned ‘Spring’.

On behalf of all the judges, I would like to commend all the various poets in the school for producing such high quality work.
