13th Oct 2016 – To mark National Poetry Day on Monday, all of our Year 9 students were treated to some performance poetry courtesy of Kevin Shaw, aka Professor Pango Mango. Carla Dowling of 9F tells us more …

Professor Pango Mango’s performance was exciting and fun.  He really immersed his audience in poetry.  During the our we spent with him he let us pick poems from his book, and he choose people to help act them out.  Some had to dress up as flamingos, and other as Shakespeare, and strangest of all was when when someone was turned into a ventriloquist with cleaning appliances!

I had a great time looking at poetry in a completely different light.
