Students were invited to write a poem about their experience of being in lockdown, and the judges were delighted and moved by the many poignant and powerful entries we received.

After much deliberation we're pleased to announce our three winners and share their poems: Gian Rayat (Years 7 and 8); Kayan Soomro (Years 9 and 10); and Raish Holloway (Years 11-13).
