National Poetry Day Finalists

The Stirling Smith Poet in Residence, Dr John Coutts, judged over 80 entries to our competition on the National Poetry Day theme of CHANGE.

A large audience of families and public enthused about his tips and comments and learned from each other in a fun-filled hour in the Smith Theatre.

 

There were 18 highly commended and runner-up finalists.

The six placed first were:

 

Milly P2 from Riverside Primary

Joseph P5 from Allan’s Primary

Rosie P5/6 St Mary’s Primary Dunblane

Astrud P7 St Mary’s Primary Dunblane

Anna P4/5 Dunblane Primary

Becca P6 Dunblane Primary
