Slam Poets for 300 Wairarapa Students Years 8 to 13
FRIDAY 7 MAY 2021, 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM
A rousing session of slam poetry from some of Aotearoa New Zealand’s most exciting slam poetry masters for 300 students from the Wairarapa colleges.
SLAM poets, Te Kahu Rolleston, Jordan Hamel, Ben Brown, Tarns Hood and Rose Northey will perform their favourite poems and then break into smaller groups for workshopping how to write and how to deliver spoken word pieces.
Students from across the Wairarapa will be transported to and from Kuranui College for this event for free, thanks to the very generous sponsorship from Tranzit Coachlines.
Thank you too to Trudy Sears of Reap Wairarapa for her help with organising this event and for REAP’s sponsorship support. And a big shout out to Simon Fuller (Principal) and Kathryn Homes (Team Leader of English) at Kuranui College for their organisation, support and hosting of this fantastic event in their school.
