Special Forever Voices of the Children 2014

Last Friday four of our students represented the school at the Voices of the Children ABC recording. Thank you and well done to Georgia Newell, Jonah Logan, Hannah Rogers and Corey Geering. Each student spoke about what had inspired their poetry as part of the ABC interview and then  read their own poem.

Beneath the Surface

Creatures dwell beneath the surface,

Fish, turtles and sea serpents.

The reeds blow smoothly in the wind,

The slow watery currents twist and spin.

Tadpoles speed and yabbies crawl.

Platypuses and ducks dream sleepily on…

There’s a whole big world down deep

Where creatures great and small –

Who cannot speak –

Not because they are animals

But because they are outnumbered by humans and their disgusting practices!

Beneath the Surface shows there is a lot more to a river or a waterway than appears when we just look at the surface!
