Being open to new experiences, solving problems, and exercising our imagination are all ways of thinking flexibly that we teach our children at The Toronto Heschel School. Nowhere in our school is this more evident than in our Poetry curriculum which culminated yesterday with our school-wide Poetry Festival. Poetry is the place where we learn how to play with language; where we learn how flexible, exciting, and stimulating words can be. In poetry, we learn how to use language in creative, and sometimes rule-breaking ways.

Thank you to award-winning poet (and Heschel parent) Adam Sol for sharing his own poetry with the Grade 5-8 classes today. Congratulations to all of our Heschel student poets on their beautiful recitations, compositions and explorations of poetry.
