ARMISTICE 100 SCHOOLS PRIZEGIVING AT LINCOLN UNIVERSITY

26 Nov 18
Last week three of our pupils, Daniel (as one of the shortlisted poets), Joshua and Tara as guests, attended the awards ceremony for the Armistice 100 schools poetry competition at Lincoln University.  Daniel takes up the story:  This was an amazing event with the Poet Laureate Dame Carol Ann Duffy and Imtiaz Dharker, poet, artist, filmmaker and Queen’s Gold Medallist for poetry, announcing the winning poems of the competition. I was so pleased to be chosen as one of the few that were highly commended, receiving a certificate and the anthology book of our poems. It was also great to listen to the winning poems and hear what other students have written about such an emotional and important subject: such great ways of writing about it that were truly inspiring. Lincoln was a lovely city and university, really beautiful at night by the river, with the cathedral looking benignly down from the hill. The ride back was lots of fun too. Who doesn't love being stuck at Peterborough for two hours? Still, all in all, it was an amazing experience and I'm so glad we were able to attend.
