Celebrating WBD with poet Phil Wilcox (Pre-Prep)

Although we were unable to celebrate World Book Day on the actual day, we are certainly making up for it now. Thursday is the turn of Pre-Prep and Year 3 to enjoy a day of workshops with award winning poet Phil Wilcox.

Not only is Phil a Primary School teacher, but he is also a multi-award winning poet! His awards include being the Australian Poetry Slam Champion and also a two time NSW Poetry Slam Champion.

Phil hosts and co-organises Three Poets Speak – a Sydney showcase of the finest spoken word artists from around Australia. He has featured in major events like Sydney Writers’ Festival, Wollongong Writers’ Festival and Newtown Festival, where he performed for a crowd of over 8,000. He recently headlined the Melbourne event Voices in the Attic and represented NSW against Victoria in an interstate exhibition slam.

Phil is also a playwright. He co-wrote and directed Thursday - the most popular production of the 2013 Sydney Fringe Comedy Festival. 

Today started with an assembly with some children joining virtually from their classrooms in order to maintain social distancing.

This post will be updated throughout the day as each year group does their workshop with Phil.
