Thank you so much for all your fantastic entries in my Ode to My Favourite Tree Competition! I’ve had a fabulous time reading them all! You all seem to love trees just as much as I do, and it was such a treat to read about your favourites! There were  fruit trees like apple, mango, cherry and lemon; old classics like ash, oak, pine, willow and weeping birch; Asian trees like palms, banyans and Bonsai trees; and some old Aussie favourites, like  Jacarandahs, gum trees and the ancient Wollombi Pine. There was even a family tree! And the poems themselves were just as diverse, with everything from acrostics, rhyming couplets, diamond poems, free verse and even a limerick! This time the entries came from a whopping 20 schools in 6 different cities on 4 different continents! Go to my Clever Competitions page above right away to read the winning entries!

  1. Hello Sarah,

    I just arrived home from swimming and mum showed me your email. I was knocked over that you had given me a honourable mention. I am very happy and have forwarded it to my grandparents, Grandma said she had tears reading my poem and has sent it to her three sisters my great aunts! I have emailed it also to Mrs Larative.

    Thank you so much or your kind words and encouragement. Chelsea

    • Chelsea you deserved it! I’m delighted that your grandma and great aunts know too – they should be very proud of you – well done!
