World Poetry Sessions















Poetry helps us to express our thoughts, our frustrations, our memories and our dreams in a direct, powerful and beautiful way. It tells us stories we need to hear every day - stories of hope, of strength, of resilience, of courage and of going forward when times are tough. In other words – it tells us stories of the human heart. It helps us to understand life.


Poems give form and structure: it gives a vessel or a container to hold onto a big idea or to generously share the most tender moments of the heart and mind.

Through poetry we can be courageous and put our own story, our own thoughts, our own feelings and experiences into words.


Thank you to all students and staff who participated in the World Poetry Sessions, each sharing their favourite poem from their home country, presented in their mother tongue.


~Poetry is the essence of language, and language is the mirror of the soul…
