Poetry Competition

Prizes were awarded this morning to proud young poets who were the winners of Ardvreck’s annual poetry competition. We were very grateful to Mr Ed Phillips, English teacher and Housemaster from Glenalmond College, who launched and judged the poems which were on the theme of The Countryside. Mr Phillips said in assembly this morning, “The standard was extremely high which made it very difficult to judge. I am so impressed by the children’s use of figurative language at such young ages.”
Congratulations to Florence A who was crowned Ardvreck’s Young Poet of the Year. (Mrs Kinge)
