For the fifth year in a row, the English Department of École Jeannine Manuel, in association with ELSA France, hosted the French national school final of Poetry By Heart in March 2019.  Poetry By Heart is a popular competition co-founded by Sir Andrew Motion which is held annually in the UK. 

Congratulations to the 46 students from all over France for the quality of their recitations, well done to Penelope from our sister school in Lille who won the Grade 10 competition, and a special thanks to Antony McDermott for organizing!
