As part of the Godolphin Literary Festival, students from across the Senior School recited poems on a theme of Truth for Poetry Celebration. Head Girl, Cecilia Lockyer opened the event with a rendition of Polonius' speech from Hamlet and there followed a delightful selection of works, many in a range of languages studied at the school: German, French, Spanish and Mandarin. Our terrific new First Year students performed group poems with great confidence and enthusiasm, making a memorable addition to the event. Other individual contributions were made by Betty Blythe and Jessica Giddens; Lani Wei and Dr Clinton Thrower recited their own original works. It was a wonderful occasion and a lovely way for the students to contribute to a remarkable week in which Godolphin celebrated literature in all its forms.
