Aspiring Poets Display their Skills

On the afternoon of April 22, 2010, there was a full house at the Convent High School’s Auditorium for the DEF poetry session. To kick off the poetry jam, Kadijah Menerville was recognized for her continued participation and delivery in poetry. She was given a scholarship for one free term at school.


There were many different presenters who all had varied inspirations. Even two teachers recited poems they too had composed- namely Mrs Johnson and Ms Bell. It was a very enjoyable experience for all who were present and it was agreed that every aspiring poet made a very good contribution. To keep the ball rolling, the choral speech group, which is headed by Ms Stephenson, performed a poem which focused on peace.

Upon the session’s completion, I asked three participants what was their general impression of DEF poetry this year and their responses follow:

Donielle Bradshaw, writer of a poem entitled, “Nameless” felt that the performances were very good and that the poems were well thought through.

Esther Francis, writer of the poems entitled, “Transition” and “What you think about that” said that the experience was real fun.

Mrs Johnson, writer of the poem entitled, “You” said that she felt some poems sounded like love letters and also noted that hers rocked!

We applaud all the students and teachers for their originality and look forward to having many more participants next year.
