Poetry limbers up the imagination and is a true art form that packs emotional punch. We saw first-hand the power of poetry in our Junior School Assembly on Wednesday, February 26th, when thirteen students from Grades 7 through 9 stepped forward to recite their favourite poems. There was a plethora of styles, ranging from original creations to Shakespearean sonnets, free verse to rhyming schemes. Themes of friendship, faith, ecology and society were explored. You could hear a pin drop as students recited their chosen poems, making us laugh, sigh, and think carefully about the messages conveyed.
