There was a grand total of 94 entries in the competition, from 15 different schools in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Melbourne and New Delhi. Sarah was really impressed by all the entries from our school and selected four of our students as her winners: Ben Hanson for 1st place and Joe Crawford, Abhay Ramnarayan and Curtis Zhou as runners up.
Read her comments and our students' poems below...
"Ben’s poem was one of the shortest entries I received, but proves that you don’t have to write a lot of words to create an effective poem! I loved the imagery and the successful internal rhyming pattern. Well done Ben!"
The moon is bright and the sleigh is light.
Santa and the elves have everything off the shelves.
People are singing carols and the elves are moving barrels.
Chocolate is yummy,
Hot fire in the chimney,
Reindeer are coming,
Santa and elves,
Time to have fun,
Singing Christmas songs.
"This little gem from Curtis, did make me laugh with this funny entry!"
A little chubby snowman stood up nice and tall,
With two little grape eyes that come from the mall.
A bunny came along,
Looking for some lunch,
Took the grapes,
“Nibble nibble nibble”
The floor was bright ice,
And the children were feeling fun and nice.
Snowflakes were flying around,
The whole place was quiet not a sound.
The Christmas trees looked extremely bright,
And the children were waking and turning on the light.
