STUDENTS are being challenged to locate a poem penned and hidden by a local poet.
Gillian Beattie, author of Secret Poetry, was a guest speaker at Hodgson Academy on World Book Day (Thursday 3rd March).
She has since written about her visit – entitled Poem 23 – and placed this in a secret location near to the school. Students can use the following GPS coordinates – 26ft 53.8642˚ N, 2.9892 ˚ W – to find Gillian’s secret poem.
Anyone who does should return it to Mrs Banks.
Various literacy events were staged at Hodgson to mark World Book Day, including a visit by performance poet Mike Garry, a fantasy book quiz and best book villain vote by students and staff.
