Students in Year 9 have been practising their creative writing skills and collated their work into a beautifully presented anthology to showcase their talents.
Their teacher, Ms Richardson, is so proud of the students' heartfelt pieces and the effort they put into this. Well done 9B1!

Miss Richardson writes...
This is a collection of creative writing that the students in 9B1 have worked tirelessly on this term. Their pieces are personal, powerful and at times comedic. The pieces are raw, sometimes unpolished, but it is the rough nature of these words that spoke to the students the most.
Together we have discovered a new love for spoken poetry and observed other ways literature can shape our lives. It has not been an easy journey. Our process of drafting and redrafting has been tedious. But the students, as they say themselves, have “conquered the English Language.”
Some pieces are works of prose and others poetry. The most important part of this process was that students selected pieces that they were most proud of, with the objective to find the personal in literature. Colloquialisms are common within these pieces, but we found that these words often held the most significance.
Boys, it has been a privilege to watch you grow into writers. I hope that this project gave you all a voice you were longing for.
