Student Bush Poetry 

Year 4

Pint-sized poets can take to the stage and showcase their favourite poetry in Ekka's Student Bush Poetry Competition. Students can compete in classes for original or known Australian poems and have six minutes to belt out their bush ballads to a live audience.

With poems by published authors Banjo Patterson and Henry Lawson and original works crafted by the students themselves, this competition is a great way to reconnect the city with rural stories.
