A supportive and engrossed audience of predominantly Year 7 pupils watched with concentration and no little admiration as the twelve class winners, who had battled their way through to this year’s ‘Poetry by Heart’ Year 7 House event final, held forth in the intimately-lit surroundings of the Drama Studio on Tuesday 28th February.
Following the excellent recitals and deliberation from the judges (Mrs. Lucking, Miss Johnson and Mr. Maund) scores and placings were as follows:
1st Miranda Addy (Gawthorpe)
2nd Anna Klioukina (Samlesbury)
3rd Ben Bithell (Samlesbury)
1st Samlesbury 126.5
2nd Gawthorpe 121
3rd Leighton 106
4th Rufford 94
Thanks to all competitors, judges and English staff for making this event, now a fixture of the House calendar, happen once again.
