SCOB visit Gilmerton Primary to commend Poetry entries

Filed under: Uncategorized — fhartree @ 11:06 am

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.  10 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. 

David Aird from Gilmerton Primary said:

Just a short note to thank you for taking the time to come into the school yesterday and for getting the poems together for the booklet.
As you can imagine the children were really pleased and surprised and I am sure that this will stay with them as a positive experience and who knows what might happen in the future.
