Poets share their personal journey with our students.
As preparation and inspiration for the upcoming oral presentation in Level 2 English, students were fortunate enough to see performance poets in action at a Year 12 assembly. Three poets from the South Auckland Poets’ Collective shared their personal journey through poetry, demonstrating the power of the spoken word.
This performance was followed by a Spoken Word Workshop for those students who were keen to take part. Very quickly, the poets were able to break down the barriers of shyness and had everyone participating and learning new skills in a safe and encouraging environment. This was a wonderful opportunity, one which we hope to repeat in future years.
