Birkdale's Classics Department celebrated National Poetry Day on Thursday 6 October with a lunchtime Poetry Party. There was tasty Roman and Greek style food and drink on offer, whilst pupils studying Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation performed poems both in English and the original languages.
The theme for this year was 'Messages', giving an opportunity to choose verse from a wide variety of genres, ranging from a moving epitaph for the 300 Spartans to Ovid's amusing response to a rejected invitation.The event attracted an appreciative audience from S1 (Y7) through to Upper 6th (Y13).
