The St Swithun’s School round of the Poetry by Heart competition took place in mid-November. Superb recitations were offered by all participants but the overall winner was Chloe Evans U5
Chloe recited The Ballard of Reading Gaol
by Oscar Wilde and What the Chairman Told Tom
by Basil Bunting. She will now proceed to the Hampshire county final next term. Many thanks to last year’s school and Hampshire winner Jodie Russell L6
for the organisation of the event.
