October 24, 2012 - Poetry has given over sixty students at St. Anne Catholic Elementary School in Hanmer a voice. Students from two Intermediate classes participated in a Poetry Café as a culminating task to their Literacy program. Poems focused on a variety of topics offering different points of view. The students' messages, filled with wisdom far beyond their years, dealt with difficult topics such as bullying, The Children's Aid Society, and the horse racing industry.
“This experience really made me realize how creative and different each and everyone of us is, and how if we put our minds to it, we can share who we truly are,” said Brayden Kramer, a Grade 8 student at St. Anne Catholic Elementary School.
These young poets actively listened to others while sipping on hot chocolate at the “Café.” They snapped their fingers in applause and hollered with approval to encourage fellow classmates. The Intermediate students truly demonstrated their inclusive nature as they encouraged those who were nervous to participate and congratulated everyone for a job well done.
“The quality of the work students produced blew me away,” said Julie Caissie, teacher at St. Anne Catholic Elementary School.
“This Poetry Café not only showcased the amazing students we have at St. Anne Catholic School, but also displayed their unique talents and gifts,” said Jody. O'Daiskey, a teacher at the school.
