GTS remembers to take part in

National Poetry Day

Posted on: 03/10/2014

Great Torrington School took part in National Poetry Day on 2nd October and embraced the theme for 2014, ‘Remember’ so there’s lots of scope for reading, creating and generally celebrating poetry.  Here are some great examples of what Great Torrington School did to take part in National Poetry Day.

A poetry competition launched right across the school to staff and pupils based around the theme of Remember.  Mrs Hannah Dodwell, Head of English said “We received some amazing entries for our National Poetry Day competition.  The winners’ poems are outstanding and the pupils should be very proud of their writing.  Many thanks to everyone who took part.

KS4 – Ben Harrison and Bean Travis
KS3 Andy Hodge and Rees Parkhouse
Staff – Bill O Donnell and Tanya Tiller

All of the above pupils won a £10 WH Smiths voucher. Click Here to see photos of the winners!


To mark the importance of National poetry day along with the poignancy of the centenary of World War 1, staff at GTS took part in the reading of Carol Ann Duffys’ ‘Last Post’.
