You are white lace
in purple transparency.
You flow
like visible light
into striped pyjamas and pointe shoes, 
and bloodshot mysteries
echo the war
between midnight and Hemingway.

        from ‘Stronghold’ by Tiegan, Year 9, Dapto High School, 2015


Visual artist and arts educator Lilly Blue will lead Year 7 & 8 students at Dapto High School in exploring the wonders of their special objects. After a poetry reading in the assembly hall, Lilly will guide fifty students in writing heart-felt poems based on their dearest belongings. Students will dive into unique activities inspired by our latest Poetry Object learning resource, which is available here.
