Poet performance

Pupils at Wynberg Girls High School performing at "A Kalk Bay Soiree".

Award-winning South African poet and writer Finuala Dowling was the special guest at a performance by Wynberg Girls’ High School pupils last Friday to celebrate her work. Ms Dowling’s first poetry anthology, I Flying, was published in 2002 and won the Ingrid Jonker Prize for the best debut work of Afrikaans or English poetry. The show, A Kalk Bay Soiree, included renditions of On the Roof with Rory and the Failing Feeling. Singer, writer and musician, Robin Auld, also performed on the night.
