Today at lunch time was a feast of popcorn and poetry to celebrate NZ Poetry Day.
Children packed in to the library to recite old favourite poems. Many read their own creative poems which was just delightful. So many talented children.
It was lovely also to see so many children standing up and reading poems out loud together. For every poem read out children received a handful of popcorn and a bookmark. It takes courage to stand up in front of other students and read out your poems so I thank you all for making this another Fendalton School day to sparkle and shine.
We have heaps of poetry books in the library if you want to read more and you can check out the very creative Poetry Box where a number of children from Fendalton have had poems published online.
