Poetry Slam Success
Ballakermeen has triumphed at the 2017 One World Centre Poetry Slam final. Graihagh, Ann Mary, Francesca and Grace saw off stiff competition from the other participating schools to lift the trophy. They gave a resounding performance of their poem ‘Her Story’ to a packed audience and, after a tense wait, the judges declared them all-island champions.
Congratulations also go to Audrey who performed her poem ‘Oblivious’, and to Katie and Jessica who performed their poem ‘Fading Away’. The three participating teams had already been successful during Ballakermeen’s own Poetry Slam at the end of last term, securing them a place in last night’s final.
Their achievements are the culmination of many months of hard work and we are very proud of their success.
