Lower Four Compete in the Declamations Grand Final
21 April 2023 - Academic
Over the course of this year, all LIV pupils have been developing their public-speaking skills through a series of poetry declamations hosted by the Classics, Modern Languages and English departments. Winners from each department then gathered to perform at the Grand Final on Thursday 20 April; it was wonderful to hear pupils reciting poetry in English, Chinese, French, German, Spanish and Latin. All the pupils did a fantastic job conveying the meaning of their poems with clear, thoughtful and emotive delivery.
Special congratulations go to our overall winner, Clemmie, who performed in Spanish ‘Sólo tres letras’ by Gloria Fuertes. Flora was named Highly Commended and performed ‘Gefunded’ by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in German.
