Borderlines Book Festival Poetry Entrants
At the end of the Summer term, students from Trinity School worked on creating poems based on the theme of ‘Water’. Many of our students entered the competition and we displayed much of their work in the Jubilee Entrance hall to the school. 11 candidates were selected to go forward into the Borderline Poetry competition, which was judged in October. Excitingly, we heard from the competition judges, and 6 of our students had been selected as winners and runners up of the competition!
The presentation event was held in the Fratry at Carlisle Cathedral, on Saturday the 8th of October at 7.30, and our students were there to represent Trinity. Each of the finalists recited their poem to the audience, who were very appreciative of the talents displayed! The winners received generous cash prizes for their efforts!
We are delighted with the result and would like to thank Borderlines Book Festival for running the competition, and for the great opportunity.
