On Saturday 14th November, students from The British School of Beijing participated in a Poetry Slam competition at the Bookworm in Sanlitun. The evening was a celebration of spoken word poetry and was hosted by the Australian Slam Poet, Luka Lesson.

The three students that took part in the competition were Tsepang Sekhokoane from Year 8, Alex Kroepfl from Year 9, and Kirsty MacLeod from Year 12. All of the young poets had to write their own poem and perform it in front of a packed venue.

Altogether, 19 poets from schools across Beijing took part in the event.

It was a wonderful evening for BSB as Alex Kroepfl was awarded 2nd place and Kirsty MacLeod was awarded 3rd place.

In acknowledgement for their effort and outstanding performance, the secondary English department awarded all of the students a signed copy of Luka Lessons book.
