Autumn has arrived and the new School Makar has penned her first poem for the Comely Park Newsletter. Naturally it has pride of place here, too! Olivia has taken each letter of the word Harvest to create an evocative piece that whets the appetite!

It’s been a while since I last put up any of Olivia’s poems, and now I have a whole collection to share! She has been busy writing on a range of topics, including a very important one: how to stay safe online.

Think Smart - Olivia

Here’s a fun poem about going back to school, which must have been written just after the summer break:

Summer's Over - Olivia

The next one is an acrostic poem on the same subject. Nice to see it’s full of optimism and enthusiasm about school!

Haggis - Olivia

Olivia’s last poem as School Makar was delivered on 28 June 2018 at the P7 Final Assembly. She read her poem before handing the baton to the next young poet to hold the post (whose identity will be revealed on the Comely Park School Makar page). I think Makar is a brilliant poem, and I wish Olivia all the best as she moves on to new and exciting challenges in secondary school.
