Anneke Stroink has a keen interest in Elizabeth Bishop

Grade Four student Anneke Stroink presented her Heritage Project about Elizabeth Bishop at the LeMarchant St. Thomas School in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on 25 April 2014. Her project placed third, which meant that it advanced to the regional presentations on 8 May. Anneke’s project won first prize at this level and she has advanced to provincials, which will take place soon at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax. Anneke portrayed Elizabeth Bishop in two short films by John Scott (Magpie Productions). Both films were based on Bishop poems: “First Death in Nova Scotia” and “In the Waiting Room,” and were screened at the Atlantic Film Festival in 2011 and 2013 respectively.
