The Cashmore Poetry Competition 2019

Forty three students from Years 5 and 6, Third Form and Fourth Form competed in the Cashmore Poetry Competition performing their creative writing in French, Spanish and German. During the event, a group of native speakers read poems in French, Spanish, German, Russian and Serbo-Croatian highlighting the great variety of nationalities that makes Sidcot School unique. 

This year our students really showed off their dramatisation skills as we had a great variety of performances, props and interpretations of poetry. Making the decision to award only three for each category a very hard job for our judges, who were very impressed by the pronunciation and content of many contestants.

Cashmore is also a great House event and all participants received 5 House Points for their great effort. The winning House will be announced next week during the last whole school assembly.
