Bringing poetry to the people

On 26 February, Woollahra Council’s 30th Poets’ Picnic took place in the beautiful Blackburn Gardens. Two Ascham girls, Mimi Kind and Eliza Howard, proudly represented our school by reciting works that focused on the theme of Change.

Mimi and Eliza both performed pieces by slam poets: Poppy by Sarah Kay and Evolution by Soli Raphael, a 12-year-old slam poet from Sydney.

The evening, hosted by ABC 702’s Simon Marnie, featured professionals Fiona Wright, Holly Friedlander Liddicoat, Mark Tredennick, Geoffrey Lehmann and Toby Fitch also performing works of poetry.

Poetry, picnics and Sydney Harbour—what a glorious way to wrap up summer!
