Poetry by Heart


On Monday evening at Woking Library, Madeleine took part in the ‘Poetry by Heart’ competition. There were several students from across the county participating and Maddy was up against students in Year 13! Maddy read 3 poems in total, ‘Invictus’ by William Ernest Henley, ‘Galloping Cat’ by Stevie Smith and ‘There will come soft rains’ by Sarah Teasdale. Maddy did exceptionally well and we are pleased to announce that she was selected as the Regional Winner and will be participating in the National round in March in Cambridge.
