Katherine Strathen Poetry Cup 2015

Our KS2 pupils attended a special assembly this morning where the winner of the Katherine Strathen Poetry cup was announced and presented by Mrs Strathen in memory of her daughter, a pupil at Mount Charles School who died of leukaemia.  The school is proud to have supported Mrs Strathen’s charity to raise money for Leukaemia Research for many years now.

The annual award is presented to a child in Year 5  who has produced a memorable poem.  This year’s worthy recipient was Evan with this poem:
