Dante Alighieri Poetry Competition

After a hectic week of exams, Year 9 and 10 Italian students set out to Melbourne on a cold and icy Friday morning. Our first stop was Melbourne University, and it was there that, after months of practice, students nervously recited their poems to the judges.

Students could not wait to head down to Lygon Street and devour Italian favourites, such as pizza, focaccia, calzone and arancini. Brunetti’s always caters for everyone’s needs in typical Italian gastronomic delights!!! Some students finished their lunch with gelato or other typical Italian sweets! After lunch, we had the chance to explore the Bourke Street Mall.

Before returning to Swan Hill, we were notified that Nyathor Nhial and Jasmine Wright had made it through to the finals stage! Congratulations and we wish you well in the next round on Thursday 18th July.

Well done to all students who participated and practiced tirelessly over the last couple of months.
