The School

The Scots College is one of the oldest and most reputable boys' schools in Australia. Based in Sydney, NSW Scots is a non-selective Presbyterian GPS boys' school for day and Boarding students. Our workshops will be held at their Glengarry outdoor education campus

The Project

Australian slam poets Lorin Elizabeth and Zohab Zee Khan visited 100 Year 9 students from The Scots College (Glengarry) in Kangaroo Valley, NSW. The poets guided the students through different exercises from The Disappearing learning resource in an intensive two-day workshop, and encouraged students to share their poems in an Inter-dorm Poetry Slam.
