Slam Poetry finals at Deakin Edge

What a privilege and joy to hear finalists from 5 schools (Casey Grammar, Charles La Trobe College, Melbourne High School, Northcote High, The John Monash Science School) perform at the Out Loud Poetry Slam finals at #MWF17.

Our year 9 boys from Mr Mahoney ‘s English class (9L), Ivan and Yi Ming, treated us to a powerful performance. The standard was incredibly high for all competitors and we were extremely proud of our students.

Congratulations to the John Monash Science School who won for the second year running.

Lucky students from 9L (and the 2 MHS runners-up) who attended the performance. They have witnessed the power of performance poetry and may never be the same again.
