Aspiring Poet

Congratulations to Sarah Joyce on her recent success in the Irish Christmas Tree Growers Poetry Competition. Sarah won first prize in the Connacht region with her wonderful poem ‘The Christmas Tree’. Sarah won a Christmas tree for our school and also a Christmas tree for herself. As a regional winner she also won a cash prize of fifty Euro. We are all so proud of Sarah and her wonderful achievement. Below is Sarah’s winning poem:

The Christmas Tree

The Christmas tree

was all alone,

He sat in the forest

On his own!


He waited and waited

Until the day,

A family came

And took him away.


They put him in the living room,

For everyone to see,

He was so beautiful

The little Christmas tree.
