Trócaire Poetry Competition Winners

Poetry Ireland/ Trócaire Poetry Competition

Three winners in North Bay

We were delighted that three of our students in 4th class were awarded places in this nationwide competition. Jude Rogers came first overall with his poem, ‘Love Conquers Fear’, Abbey Lin and Fionn McGibney were runners up with their poems ‘The Fox’ and ‘Forgiveness’. This was a fantastic outcome! Well done to our three winners and to all of the children who put so much effort into their creative endeavours. We have included the poems below, and some photos from the Awards Ceremony.

 

Love Conquers Fear   [click to watch video]

I feel the prickly snake
and hear the roar of death,
I see the black hole
and feel the fiery heart of fear.

I run and run and run,
I run into the morning,
into the fluffy fur
of my golden dog.

Love licks my hand,
nudges my leg.
love lies beside me,
richness and confidence,
I feel love inside.

JUDE ROGERS

 

 

The Fox [click to watch video]

Fear looks like
four prowling paws,
a small sniffing snout,

black eyes that are dull
and hungry.
It lurks in the street
hunting for food, hunting for hope.

Love grows
in the heart of the earth.
When the fox catches
the scent of love it changes,

it grows new fur,
fluffy as a cloud
spread over the fox.

Love gives the fox
food and safety.
when love touches it,
the fox fills with kindness

 

Forgiveness  [click to watch video]

I hear the cry of fear.
Love, get ready for battle,

Love will throw
fear back to its den.

I feel fear upon us all,
it captures us, treats us like a ragdoll.

I taste victory for love,
I see shame for fear.

What love says touches my heart.
Fear, I forgive you.

This is the third time in six years this show has been presented and as before it will contain a mixture of dance pieces, video projects by the children and a play performed by the teachers. The dances involve group and pair work and we are expecting 100% participation from 3rd to 5th (voluntary in 6th), so please inform the school ASAP if your child will be unavailable on those dates.

Children will need to be at the school by 6:30 pm and the show should be over by 8:15.  Costume is a plain white t-shirt/top and dark tracksuit bottoms/leggings.

Tickets will be available in the week beginning April 30th.
