Poet Anne Michaels Visits George S. Henry Academy

Poet Anne Michaels Visits George S. Henry Academy

George S. Henry Academy is proud of their students who were recognized for a city-wide poetry contest hosted by Anne Michaels, internationally acclaimed poet, novelist and Toronto’s fifth Poet Laureate. 

TDSB secondary students across the city were invited to participate in a city-wide poetry contest in celebration of Canada’s Sesquicentennial.  The best 150 stanzas would have formed a single, city-wide poem to symbolize equality and diversity.  George S. Henry’s ESL students welcomed this challenge. With the guidance of their teacher, Ms. Mah, students submitted a 10 line poetry expressing their celebration of Canada’s birthday. 

To acknowledge their achievement, the Cultural Development Officer Christopher Jones and Poet Laureate Anne Michaels made a personal visit to congratulate each student for their hard work, dedication and commitment to student learning.  The occasion was celebrated with warm regards from Anne Michaels, student poetry and each student was presented with certificates to recognize their achievements. It was truly an honour to host Anne for the day as she is Toronto’s literary ambassador who believes strongly in celebrating the voice of diversity.

Our Mission

and values they need to become responsible, contributing members of
