Slam Poets bring the THUNDER

Congratulations to the RTHS 2018 SLAM Poetry Team who rocked the competition with their beautifully crafted words at  Bishop Grandin High School this weekend. They competed against 20 schools for the coveted Wagner trophy and the slamming rights that go with it!! This year’s team placed first in their afternoon bout on Friday, placed first in their second bout on Saturday morning, which got them a birth in the finals, and then were beyond awesome with their words in the Finals – the RTHS SLAM team brings home the Wagner – the winners of this year’s Can You Hear Me Now SLAM Competition!!!! Lauren, Holly, Shulamit, Matt, Bogdan and Chris were amazing ambassadors for Robert Thirsk High School and made us incredibly proud! Kudos to Mr. Lake, Ms. Connelly and Mr. Holmes for supporting our amazing students!

As well, a shout out to Mr. Heron’s graphic design kids – they entered a number of designs in the Can You Hear Me Now SLAM Competition t-shirt logo contest for next years design and ………. Won!! We will be passing on the kudos to Mr. Heron and his students!! Their design will be used for next years team t-shirts!! Congratulations.
