The 2019 MacLachlan College Poetry Festival was a resounding success! The top six students from kindergarten to Grade 3 and class choral recitations were selected to present a poem to the student body and visiting MAC families. Select students in the fifth grade also shared the poetry they had written themselves while the judges tabulated results.
Our judges included our Head of School, Mr. Peining, Director of English, Mr. Dominato and PYP & Learning Commons Coordinator, Ms. Woodward - together they judged students and classes on their memorization, composure, elocution and the level of the poem's difficulty. After much deliberation and tabulation, the judges will choose one student from each grade as the winner and the homeroom classes will be selected as the overall first, second and third place winners.
Congratulations to all students and classes for showing fantastic effort and excellence at this year’s festival! Special thank you to our judges and 2019 Poetry Festival Coordinator, Ms.Woodward!
