After the fantastic success of our Year 10 Italian students in the Dante Alighieri Poetry Competition at Melbourne University earlier this month, we are very proud to announce that 31 of our Year 7 & 8 students are entering the Swinburne Junior Italian Poetry Competition. This is held twice a year, in June and September. The September session is now open and takes place over three weeks. The poetry competition commences Monday 5 September and concludes Friday 22 September 2017.
Students choose a poem to memorise for recitation. Prizes are awarded for first, second, third and fourth in each section, and special mention certificates are presented for outstanding presentations. Participation certificates are given to all students.
We wish the following students all the very best and look forward to the results.
