The School

School of Isolated and Distance Education (SIDE) is based in Leederville, WA. SIDE is the centre of distance and online learning within the Department of Education and provides quality education for students who for various reasons cannot attend classes in a regular school.

The Project

As part of Red Room's annual Poetry Object Competition, students from SIDE were led in poetic workshops via their digital classrooms network with poet Lilly Blue on June 27 2018.

Students created unique poems based on their own objects. They will submit their poems to Poetry Object, to be published in the digital library
