Presbyterian Ladies' College, Alice Springs

As a Christian independent girls' school, Presbyterian Ladies' College in Melbourne aims to provide breadth, strength, balance and quality of education in both national and international contextsfor the purpose of encouraging leadership, service, and life-long personal development and learning.
The Disappearing poet and teacher, Cathy Altmann, ran three poetry workshops (independent from the Red Room Education program) with several Year 7 students. They looked at making poetry that was 'sensory', 'unexpected' and 'specific'. They tossed fruit around, played word games, generated unexpected metaphors, and gave feedback to each other.
Here are some of their poems.
