…or is it just friendly rivalry?
Urmston Grammar Students vied with one another to produce the best recitals of selected war poems in our annual Poetry by Heart competition.
Overall winner, once more, was Beth Molyneux, who was actually placed second in the national competition last year! Lower school winner was Harriet Short, while Emily Greaves took the prize for best recital from an Upper School student.
Beth and Harriet will now go on to compete in the next round of the national competition, via video upload.
Chairman of Governors, Eric May, also graced the event, reading a poem about becoming 90, as well as reciting one from when he was younger.
Thanks go to Jonathan Ainscough, our external judge, and to our internal judges, Ms Longden, Mrs Harness and Mrs Rogers… and, of couse to Mrs Sandys for organising the event.
