Congratulations to Ejoy.
Dorothea Mckellar was an early 20th Century Australian poet most famous for her stirring work “My Country” written in 1908. Since 1984 the Dorothea Mckellar Award for poetry has been given in her honour. Since that time it has grown from an inaugural 300 entries to a competition which attracts tens of thousands of entries from school students across the nation. This year the award in the NSW Multicultural category has been won by Narrabundah College student Ejoy for her amazing poem “Phantoms”, described by the judges as a “Deeply moving and heartfelt poem of dislocation and belonging. “ Ejoy was presented with her trophy during last week’s assembly, along with some beautiful book prizes and a cheque for $500. Her wonderful poem is reproduced here for your enjoyment.
