Year 9 student becomes a finalist in 'Words of Unity' poetry competition
Several of our students entered the 'Words of Unity' poetry competition, held by Global Acts of Unity. We are delighted to announce that one of our students, Year 9 scholar Anna, was a finalist! Chosen from almost 2,500 entries, her poem expressed what unity meant to her – something much needed during these times. Congratulations Anna!
Here is her poem:
The Books in Our Library
We are all books in the same library
We all tell our own story:
Stories of struggle, sadness, despair;
Stories of hope, perseverance, prayer
Some have covers, tattered and torn,
Some are old with pages worn
Some are tall, robust and strong,
Others unsure where they belong.
Often we let our differences divide us,
By religion, colour, gender, race
When we are all the same underneath;
We are all books together in the same space
Our differences are what enrich our lives,
Reading would be dull if all books were alike
Whether man, woman, sister or brother,
You should never judge a book by its cover.
