Poetry Day

For nineteen years students have been studying and enjoying poetry in April at Saint Columban School. On Thursday morning, May 9th, students and many lucky parents got to celebrate the rhythm and rhyme of Poetry Day. Each student at school selects and memorizes a poem, and lessons are designed to help students understand the importance and impact a few well chosen words can make. This celebration highlights a student or two chosen to represent their class and perform the poem for everyone assembled.

Poems ranged from the silly “Recess! Oh Recess!" Recited by the entire Transitional Kindergarten classes. To the more serious works of Gerard Manley Hopkins, Lord Byron and Sir Walter Scott read by the students in sixth through eighth grade. The fourth grade entertained the audience with Paul Perro’s “The California Gold Rush” performed by Jamen and Stuart with the entire class backing them up in full prospector costumes.

Kindergarteners performed the works of Eugene Field and Robert Louis Stevenson chorally, while Tyler and Sloane made us all laugh with their comical rendition of works by famous children’s poets Roald Dahl and Jack Prelutsky. We all left inspired by Samantha as she reminded us to never believe them when they say “It Couldn’t be Done”. We are so proud of all the students and their hard work, and we look forward to next year’s twentieth annual celebration.
