House Haiku Competition 2020

Originating from Japan, Haiku is the shortest form of poetry in the world. It is a short descriptive verse with three lines of five, seven, and five syllables. A haiku often features an image, or a pair of images, meant to depict the essence of a specific moment in time.

Our House Haiku Competition this year had the theme 'Sports' and the Olympics/ Paralympics.

Congratulations to our overall winner Natalie Ng Year 8

..and to all of the House Group winners...

The winning House was Terra.

The winning poem and illustration have been entered into the Japan Society JAL Foundation 16th Worldwide Children’s Haiku Contest along with the other 4 winners from the House Competition. We are proud to be part of the Japan-UK Season of Culture 2019-20 Celebrations and now look forward to the Tokyo Olympics & Paralympics in 2021.
