First for poetry

Flushed with success from his role in the School of Rock, Head of German Mr Depoix has now won a national poetry competition. Mr Depoix and students from Gordon’s had to learn a First World War poem by heart for the ‘Poetry By Heart’ competition. He earned first place for his rendition of ‘There Will Come Soft Rains’ by Sara Teasdale while student Darcy Watson was awarded ‘Highly Commended’. The competition aims to inspire those in schools and colleges to learn and recite poems by heart, showing that they inwardly understand and enjoy the poem.
