Year 7 Poetry Prize Winner
Bobby Jones from 7E is to be applauded for his recent success when he won 3rd prize in the 11 – 16 age group of a Wirral Poetry competition.
The Poetry Extravaganza, held in memory of Calday Grange student Chris Salmon who died tragically in 2009 aged 15, asked for Wirral students to write a poem linked to the theme “2012 This Special Year”.
Bobby’s poem, competing against students up to five years older than him, was about the 2012 Olympics. It won him a cash prize and a certificate, both awarded at a ceremony at Bromborough Civic Centre on Friday 27th April. It also earned him a place on a poetry workshop hosted by renowned local poet Levi Tafari.
