Gilmerton Primary Carries a Poem Monday, 29 March 2010

Posted by edincityoflit in Schools blog.

On the 15th of March Edinburgh Napier University visited Gilmerton Primary school.  Primary 5 children had entered the how do you carry your poem drawing competition but instead of drawing a picture they decided to write their own original poems about how they carried their poem.

Ten of the children’s poems from this school were selected and printed into a booklet.  Fiona Hartree from Edinburgh Napier University surprised the children by appearing at assembly and presented the children with their poem in print and their poem framed.

You can see some of the entries to Napier’s Carry a Poem competition here.

Passed through Gilmerton on the weekend on a visit to Crieff (from Yorkshire) and was struck by the beauty of the countryside.

I would love to read their poems; how do I get to find them?
