Pill pupils have taken part in a petry competition.
Students at St Katherine’s School in Pill took part in a national poetry competition for 14-18-year-olds at The Leaf at Ham Green restaurant.
Poetry By Heart is a pioneering competition designed to help pupils learn and recite poems by heart by tasking them with memorising and reciting two poems chosen from the Poetry By Heart website - one from pre-1914 and one from post-1914.
Poems were read by pupils Cathi Howe, Lili Harvey, Jasmine Mahesan, Lucy Curtis, Esther Goucher, Aiden McCallum, Tara Hodder, Megan Hopkins and Tom Caffrey.
After much deliberation Jasmine was declared the winner by guest judge, poet Rosie Bailey.
