Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The stu­dents of ardindes- ron­tieres school were joined by those of St. Barthelemy, of Ayer’s Cliff, and Do­minique-Savio, of SteCather­ine-deHat­ley, for a SLAM po­etry com­pe­ti­tion at the school last Thurs­day eve ron­tieres ning in front of fam­ily and friends.

Dur­ing a Slam po­etry com­pe­ti­tion, peo­ple read their orig­i­nal po­ems, ei­ther alone or in teams, be­fore an au­di­ence. The read­ings are judged on the man­ner and en­thu­si­asm of the per­for­mance, the po­ems con­tent and style. Slam po­ems are not meant to be read silently.

“Dur­ing the evening, the stu­dents demon­strated their dy­namism, their pas­sions and their abil­ity to com­pose and an­i­mate their work orally,” com­mented the direc­tor of ardin-des- ron­tieres, Julie Dubois.
