Poetry by Heart

9 February 2016


On Monday 1st February, Alexandra Bache delighted the audience with a strong performance of poetry in the County Level Round of the 'Poetry by Heart' Competition which took place at the Gulbenkian Theatre of the University of Kent in Canterbury. Alexandra, a year 10 student, faced competition from a field of mainly Sixth Form students from schools across the county; nonetheless, she gave a confident, lively  and word perfect recitation of two poems by Ted Hughes and George Herbert. It was an excellent start to a competition in which we hope to participate in coming years - thank you and congratulations Alexandra!
