Poetry by Heart 2014 at KGV College Southport December 17th, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments Poetry by Heart 2014 at KGV College Southport The College round of the Poetry by Heart 2014 National Recitation Competition took place on Thursday 12th December in KGV’s Learning Centre. This involved reciting two challenging poems off by heart and resulted in a nerve wracking competition. It was a very close contest with excellent performances throughout but when the scores were totalled, Helena MacCormack had slightly edged ahead to first place with Victoria McCluskey-Williams coming in as a close runner-up. The county contest, which is the next stage of the competition, will be held in Liverpool in February. Helena will be required to memorise and recite three poems, competing against the winners from schools and colleges from around the county. Winners of the regional semi-finals compete in the grand final at the National Portrait Gallery in London in March 2014. We wish Helena all the best with the next stage of the contest!
