Poetry Comes Alive at St. Benedict

Grade 9 student Sabrina Bagnarol stated she felt nervous before and during her presentation of her poem Irony, but felt good after when she heard the applause from her fellow classmates.

April 30, 2012 - At St. Benedict CSS poetry comes alive as students follow the spoken-word tradition of oral literature from long ago. Performance poetry is a different art form from the usual printed version, and was the original method used by poets in Ancient Greece to reach audiences with their work. After a week of poetry writing, editing, polishing and practicing their delivery, they are ready to showcase their piece in front of attentive classmates, teacher and published poet Tanya Neumeyer using the same medium of ancient times. At the end of all their performances, the students involved were said to have graduated from Neumeyer's week-long poetry course when they cried out unanimously "We did it!".
