The auditorium at École secondaire Sieur de Coulonge was packed on Friday night as students performed in the third annual poetry slam event, with this year’s iteration entitled: À Coeurs Ouverts (Open Hearts).
Dozens of students clambered in front of the audience to perform short written pieces, nervously reciting lines from iPhones and sheets of loose leaf.
Teacher and event organizer Dominique Bomans explained that the nearly 50 students that participated were mostly from secondary four and five, along with a few from secondary three. They worked on their pieces for about two months, polishing their prose and delivery.
