Congratulations to Year 3 student Grace P., who recently received a Commendation in the Lower Primary Division for her entry in this year’s Dorothea McKellar Poetry Competition. To give you an idea of the scale of the competition, this Division alone received 1152 entries.
Grace is part of our Junior School Horizons Program led by Mr Joshua Scott.
Below is a copy of her poem, ‘A Roller Coaster of Life’.
I feel my body bursting out with glee
The dark starts to fade
A light rises up in me
My face is the core of the earth
The volcano in my heart spews out
and swallows the world of delight
The ocean rushes out of my eyes
A bucket full of grief pours over me
It feels like my heart ripped in two
Then it starts all over again
like a roller coaster of life.
