Click here to read poems by Dapto High School students.

You flow 
like visible light 
into striped pyjamas and pointe shoes,  
and bloodshot mysteries 
echo the war 
between midnight and Hemingway.

~ ‘Stronghold’ by Tiegan, Year 9

After a poetry reading in the assembly hall, Lilly guided fifty students in writing heart-felt poems based on their dearest belongings.
