Education and Schools

Celebrate poetry in schools on Poetry Day Ireland, Thursday 25 April 2024 with our inspiring and fun activities. These can be used for teaching and adapted by parents for use at home with youngsters.

Schools can get involved on Poetry Day Ireland with an online collection of inspiring ideas to celebrated poems.

Packed with poems and fun activities this vibrant online resource encourages teachers, children and families nationwide to read, write, listen to, illustrate, perform, share – and above all enjoy poetry. This imaginative poetry package, created and compiled by poet and teacher Enda Wyley, can be used not just on Poetry Day, but everyday!

Importantly, it offers children the unique opportunity to connect with poetry for pleasure and for life.
