SSP Poetry Competition
To help promote the cultural element of the School Games, this term we will be holding a poetry competition. We are looking for a young person to share through poetry, what sport in school means to them. The winning entry, as determined by a local judging panel, will have their poem printed in the December SSP Newsletter, on the website, he / she will also be asked to perform it at the Sports Awards evening which will be held in the summer term, and to attend and perform where possible at School Games events.
