Poetry by Heart

Poetry by Heart

Four SJR students, Callum Charlson, Eve Rosler, Isabelle Whittle and Racheal Adeyemi participated in this year’s Poetry by Heart recitation competition. The performances were all superb, showing an excellent understanding of a wide range of poems they each selected themselves and really made their own. The eventual winner was Racheal who, along with Isabelle in second place, will now learn another poem and be filmed performing both for submission to the national competition, hoping for a place in the grand final at Shakespeare’s Globe. Following SJR students’ previous achievements: Jess Mason, national champion (2016) and Caner Aydin, national finalist (2020), we are hoping for further success!
