Tiarna’s rhyme is just in time

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

FIVE lines and two words to rhyme with her name were the se­cret to a Year 5 stu­dent’s win­ning lim­er­ick.

Gayn­dah State School stu­dent Tiarna Mer­rell won the Project 600 lim­er­ick com­pe­ti­tion with a clever verse:

There once was a girl called, Tiarna

Who had a yel­low pet iguana She fed him ap­ple And then it turned dap­ple And now she only feeds him ba­nana

While teacher Ms Roberts gave her some clues, Tiarna said she was sim­ply look­ing for some­thing that rhymed with her name. It was a win­ning de­ci­sion. Project 600 was an on­line learn­ing pro­gram con­ducted by Ed­u­ca­tion Queens­land for Year 5 stu­dents all across Queens­land, to de­velop read­ing and com­pre­hen­sion skills.

Stu­dents par­tic­i­pated in lessons for about 15 weeks, with the lim­er­ick com­pe­ti­tion held at the end of the course.
