Poetry Slam 2015

Throughout September and October, KS3 students studied poetry in their English and Vietnamese lessons and produced some amazingly creative pieces. Today, that hard work culminated in the literary event of the year – the BVIS Poetry Slam! Last year’s winner Ho Chau Kiet was there to defend his title, but would he be able to retain the cup?

Year 7 read first, terrifying the audience with their poetic tales of murder and deception. At one point, Ms Harling had to give Mr. Shooter a hug because he was so scared! Ky made us all cry, telling us about the loss of a favourite teacher, but luckily, Sachi was on hand to cheer us all up again with her delightful poem about being a chatty young girl!

Year 8 burst on to the stage with a wonderful recital from Toan. Simon, Kiet and Blair all amazed the audience with the power of their words – they gave us a real insight in to the injustices that some teenagers face.

Finally, Year 9 performed, and what a way to finish the show!  Ky Dan, inspired by his poetic hero, J. Webb, wowed the judges and audience alike with a beautifully crafted poem that described the death throes of a butterfly in Technicolor detail.

You can also watch and listen to all the poems being performed here:

After much deliberation, the judges (Ms Harling, Ms Murdoch, Mr. Shooter and Ms Lam) decided that the winners were as follows:

Year 7 – Le Hoang Khoi (Jack)

Year 8 – Le Xuan Nghi (Simon)

Year 9 – Nguyen Ky Dan

And the overall winner of the Poetry Slam 2015 was…Ky Dan with his poem ‘Webbed. Click here to read his Poem!
