Haiku Contest

In late 2019, eligible NSGHS students (students up to the age of 15 years) entered the worldwide JAL Haiku Contest 2019-2020.

We are pleased to announce that Young Kim & Serena Xie (Japanese Elective) were awarded a Japanese certificate and prize for their work.

The NSGHS students entries were chosen amongst entries from across Australia!

Young’s Haiku:

Dancing my expression
A fire sparks inside me
Words cannot explain

踊りの表現
私の中で火花が散る
言葉では言い表せない

Serena’s Haiku:

The world caught its breath
As her arrow sliced the air
Charged with love and hope

世界が息をのむ
矢が空気を突き進み
愛と希望を乗せて

Young san and Serena san, Omedetou Gozaimasu!

Originating from Japan, Haiku is the shortest form of poetry in the world. In a short descriptive verse, it captures a moment in the poet's life, or simply expresses the beauty of nature. Haiku is now enjoyed in many countries around the world.

JAL FOUNDATION biennially organizes the 'World Children's Haiku Contest', and the theme of the 16th contest was ' Sports '.
