Visit from the poet Dreadlock Alien - 27th March 2018

On Tuesday 27th March, the poet Dreadlock Alien came in to perform some of his poems to our students. Discovery students were engrossed by his rhythmic beats and rhymes and then had great fun creating and performing their own poems about Respect. A great example of this is Ryan’s poem below:


  Everyone deserves the right to make their own choice

  To stand up tall and use their voice

  I ain’t talking no trash, I ain’t no minion

  I’m just telling you my simple opinion

  I’m telling you to get up and speak

  To show them all that you’re not weak

  If we come together, we have unity

  This is how you make a perfect community

  We need to work as a group upon this earth

  Every single one of us with an equal worth
