St Catherine's Poetry Competition 2019


Mr Noel Stallard, Bush Poet, received an Order of Australia (OAM) recently for Service to Literature. This is a notable achievement for a Bush Poet in this category.  Mr Stallard has helped raise close to $90,000 over the past 7 years for Verse for Vinnies, poetry concerts to showcase professional Australian poets and school children and fundraise for St Vincent de Paul Society.

Mr Stallard's role for St Catherine's was a challenging one as adjudicator for the St Catherine's Poetry Festival. The children gave stirring performances and it was enjoyed by all who participated and those who attended.

Congratulations to the students who presented their poems and well done to the following students who received medals for their performances:

Year 1 Nathan E, Rory F, Eva B
Year 2 Diya K
Year 3 Taleea E, Claire M
Year 4 Sophie K
Year 5 Blake E, John K
Year 6 Holly M, Sameera P, Amelia C

Well done everyone!
