Ranelagh Primary School

Poetic Perfection


Ranelagh pupils have a passion for penmanship, demonstrated by their love of writing both in and outside of the classroom. Shree, a pupil in Year 3, put pen to paper last term and entered the Young Writers poetry competition, crafting a beautiful and poignant piece titled ‘Fire and Water.’ His poem was recognised for its brilliance and awarded with a place in the Young Writers Anthology, which will be publicised this term.

Young Writers is an organisation that works with schools, parents and young writers across the world and has been doing so successfully for over two decades. Their aim is to promote a love of poetry and creative writing by running annual competitions aimed at celebrating young writers and young voices. Shree’s poem was submitted for entry into this year’s poetry competition, titled ‘Rhymecraft,’ and was selected for publication; an amazing and prestigious accomplishment. 

And, unbeknownst to him at the time, he was presented with a certificate in our Friday assembly, declaring him the winner of the competition. Shree was delighted with the award and could barely contain his excitement, declaring “I never knew I was going to win! Yes! This is fantastic.” He read his poem out to the whole school who thundered with applause. Look out for Shree’s poem in 'Rhymecraft – East London' scheduled for publication on the 28th of February, 2018.
