Brave New Voices is a collection of poems and short stories created by the Year 9 Accelerated Learning Group. Students in the group have studied, performed and adapted a wide range of poetry and prose over the year as well as creating their own writing, both in class and independently outside of lessons.
Kingsbury High School teacher, Chris Beschi, mentored them on the project and said “The group have excelled in this area of study and have been prolific in their production. They have grown in confidence and ability and have achieved some outstanding results; a selection of which is included in this anthology.
“Tackling diverse issues and subjects the writing in Brave New Voices reflects the diversity of experiences, beliefs, interests and cultures that define this group of students.
“Brave New Voices is a vibrant, honest and thoughtful collection of work and a testament to the endeavour and potential of this very special group of students.”
