MOTHER TONGUE OTHER TONGUE poetry competition 2016/17

Congratulations to our S3 pupil Ciara Wilkie!

Ciara was awarded ‘Highly Commended’ for her poem ‘L’anxiété’ in the National poetry competition ‘Mother Tongue, Other Tongue’. This multilingual poetry competition celebrates linguistic and cultural diversity through creative writing.

Ciara’s poem will appear in this year’s Mother Tongue Other Tongue Anthology.  Her poem, written in French, was chosen by the judges because of its insightful use of vocabulary and thought-provoking theme of mental illness.

Well done Ciara!
