Students at Churchill School have been praised after showcasing their creative skills in a new poetry book.

The Haverhill school took part in the Young Writers’ poetry competition which led to their poems published in the book, Empowered – Rhymes on Fire.

Everything from Christmas, video games and a pet dog featured in the poems produced by students from Years 8, 9, 10 and 11.

English teacher Georgina Crawford said: “We are all very proud of the students for coming up with such creative poems and having their work published.

“Under the theme of ‘Empowered’, we had a fantastic selection of genres and styles, ranging from comedic poems to romantic sonnets.

“It was fabulous to see so many students engage with this national competition and show their emotions and feelings through poetry.”
