Celebrated poet Tim Sinclair led a three-day poetry residency at Canterbury Boys' High School on 27th May, 3rd June and 10th June. Students in Years 7 and 8 participated in two intensive workshops inspired by the Toilet Doors learning resource. The boys not only learnt about Tim's work and writing processes in creating 'parkour poetry' they also created, collaged and chalked their own poems around the school. This workshop was followed by one more session in which the students focussed on editing their poetry.
