Come see them!BIG THANKS to Irene Carrick, who arranged all of the poems and photos in the NHS library.

*Found poems are created by taking snippets of an original text, then rearranging and adding to them to create a new work. A number of students had never written poetry before, and others didn’t consider themselves “any good at that poetry stuff,” so they found the technique a comfortable way to express themselves and show their respect for our country’s servicemen and -women.
