He was a poet and he didn't even knowit

Wow! Totally exciting and really cool that two students in our class, Jack and Quinn won with their poetry at the Poetry Competition held last week at the Greymouth District Library.  There were heaps of different poetry competitions all over the show as it was Poetry Day on Friday 25th August.  There were about 100 entries just at the Greymouth Library.

Jack won the 8-13 years category with 'This Tree' and Quinn was Highly Commended in the up to 8 years category with 'Leaves'.

Jack won a $35 Paper Plus voucher!  Big thanks to the great staff at the Library for organising this event and Paper Plus for being a sponsor.

We all entered a piece of our poetry and everyone got good comments back and the judges enjoyed reading them.

We have all posted poetry on our own blogs, but you can read Jack and Quinn's poems below.
