Pupils' Poetic Visit to Care Home
On Wednesday 27th June, eight Form 1 and 2 finalists from last term's Poetry Declamation Competition gave a poetry recital to residents at Mountfitchet House care home in Stansted. The residents were treated to a selection of entertaining and reflective poems, confidently delivered to an appreciative audience. After the recitals, the Form 2 and 1 pupils - Alice L, Harriet C, Ishani M, Jasmine S, Tia S, Mia-Rose B, Jamie H and Bo V - were keen to engage in conversations. One of the residents shared some of his own poems and told us how the poems he had learned as a young boy were still fresh in his mind.
The morning’s visit concluded with an impromptu performance of some of the children’s House Music songs. Such confidence and a great experience for children and older adults alike!
