King’s Bolton Student Wins Poetry at Heart Greater Manchester County Award

This March King’s Bolton entered into the Poetry by Heart competition. Poetry By Heart is an inspiring competition for students in schools and colleges to learn and to recite poems by heart.  

The Key Stage 3 poem performances were judged by a team of poets, poetry experts and educators from the
organisations which make up Poetry By Heart’s partnership.

We are delighted to announce that Khaleel Chohan (Gilnow Mill, York House) is the County Winner in the Greater Manchester contest!

Feedback from the judges was as follows;

Poem 1: ‘Sea Fever’
A confident and clear delivery, in which Khaleel attended to the poem’s rhymes and rhythms in a manner that carried the judges along.


Poem 2: ‘The Language of Cat’
Khaleel drew listeners into this recitation with effective use of intonation, rhythm and pacing.

We are incredibly proud of Khaleel’s endeavour!
