Year 7-10 Poetry Competition

Le Concours Berthe Mouchette 2018 Year 7-8 Finals

Dechlan Burkitt (Yr 8) and Jordan Shenouda (Yr 7) – 2018 Finalists for the French Poetry competition, attended the Alliance Française in St Kilda on Sunday 24 June. Both boys proudly represented Mordialloc College and performed in the Finals for the Berthe Mouchette Poetry Competition. Thank you to their wonderful parents who also committed to this exclusive opportunity.

Here is what the boys had to say:

Dechlan: “It was great. The staff were friendly and helped with my nervousness. Merci to Madame Peerbux for her support.”

Jordan: “I really enjoyed reciting my poem at the Alliance Française in St Kilda. I was really nervous when I was waiting, but once I got it done, it felt like a weight lifted off my shoulders!”
