Our Head of Latin, Dr Prouatt, has been running a Lock-Down Latin Challenge

To keep the boys engaged and also to make Latin more fun and accessible, she has posted a new challenge each day on her Instagram account: www.instagram.com/latinchallenge/.

This week, with the SJB Verse Speaking Final’s approaching, Dr Prouatt has asked a some Upper School boys and members of staff to record themselves reading a poem by Cavafy.

Cavafy is a Greek poet who wrote richly evocative poems about the ancient world. 

Here are the poems read by boys, staff and a guest appearance from Australia. Enjoy!
