Congratulations to Wil, whose poem Motorbike was short-listed for the national competition The Poetry Object from The Red Room Company! The competition winners will be announced in November.

All our students worked hard to create memorable poems about objects that are dear to them. Over 2,550 entries were received from all over Australia, and Scott-Patrick Mitchell, the Poetry Object judge commented: “These warriors of words are creating for themselves a brave new world. And the goals they set themselves in my mind reap more rewards, promise more hope than any Premiership Cup. Come on you mighty poets, grow.

Well done to all our mighty poets! Here is Wil’s poem:

  1. Amazing job, Wil! I love poetry and this one is great. So much emotional. Truly great.

  2. A fantastic poem Wil. What was the most challenging part of writing this text? Did you base this on a personal experience or was it imagined?
