The Poetry in Action (PIA) Team returned to Middle School this week to present a poetry performance to our Year 6 and Year 8 students.
The PIA Team introduced children and young adults to the power of poetry through engaging performances.
This year’s show titled ‘Inter-National Anthem’ explored issues of race, nationality, the migrant experience and indigenous affairs. A wide range of Australian poetry from indigenous perspectives, migrant poets and modern writers was contrasted with international poetry, showcased the numerous styles utilised in poetry.
Using comic scenes, dramatic monologues, character studies, classical recitations and contemporary interpretations, the PIA Team brought poetry to life.
