Located in Alice Springs, capital of Outback Australia, St Philip’s College is a Uniting Church co-educational Boarding and Day School for students in Years 7 – 12. With strong academic excellence and a widely accredited Outdoor Education and Performing Arts program, St Philip’s College provides opportunities for children to develop their individuality, strengthen leadership skills, and create a well-rounded individual, prepared for life after school.
During two days of intensive workshops, local poet Leni Shilton worked with over 300 students at St Philip’s College. Students from Years 7, 8, and 9 took part in multimodal poetry workshops connected to the theme of The Red Room Company’s project, The Disappearing.
These are their poems.
