School for girls

National Poetry Day

To celebrate National Poetry Day on Thursday 3 October, City girls and staff wrote a collective poem on the subject of Truth and School.

Teachers supplied the first lines of the verses, and the results ranged from deeply moving to sometimes hilarious. Jolie, Year 11, wrote her own verse on the subject of learning history:

History repeats itself, first as a tragedy, second as a farce
It is rife with poor decisions, failing from the past
A little more soon, or a little more late
And the unravelling of events would have had a different fate
So to this day, haunted is the past
Set down in record and created to last
Oh! Such is the life of a City girl!

Thank you to all the girls and staff who contributed and made National Poetry Day such fun.
