Maryfield can be very proud of its seventeen representatives who recently attended the Poetry Aloud Competition in The National Library. Four places were awarded to successful participants to go through to the semi-finals and Maryfield secured two of these places. The successful students were Aoife Kehoe and Sara Coogan. Congratulations to the other fifteen students who articulated flawlessly from memory two poems from the Library’s prescribed anthologies of poetry. Already we are looking forward to the semi-finals in November. Thank you to all students and staff for their support and for making this event so successful.
