Elm Academy's Poet Laureate
Elm Academy pupils entered the Mayor of Bournemouth's poetry competition. Five children were selected to have their entries included in his anthology of poetry. We are particularly proud of William whose creative talents were recognised by the judges. He was awarded the top prize for KS2 and was installed as the Mayor's Poet Laureate at a celebratory event at the Wessex Hotel.
His work described his hopes and dreams for the future and was linked to his role models. After the awards we enjoyed a poetry recital by Clare Bevan who was pleased to sign her work for the Children.
