Another group presented a perennial penned by Roald Dahl and a humorous rendition of ‘Noah’s Ark’ by Roger McGough. All these groups too were Gold medal winners while ‘Noah’s Ark’ was judged the ‘All Island Best’ in their category.

Bible stories in verse were the choice of the Grade 7’s together with Rap Poetry penned by the British writer, dub poet and Rastafarian – Benjamin Zephaniah. Once again all groups were awarded Golds and the story of the Good Samaritan was the ‘All Island Winner’ in their category.

The grade 8’s presented an interesting range of ‘food for thought’ in verse on topical subjects like the downside of technology and the urgent need for environmental protection – another group presented the story of ‘Macbeth’ in a very bold and dramatic performance. All participants were Gold winners. The ‘Technology’ poem was selected for the ‘All Island Championship’.
