Our Class Assembly was based on the text 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes. It is a favourite classic poem that tells a enchanting story with powerful imagery and a rhythmic cadence reminiscent of horses' hooves. The story tells of the highwayman's visit to see the beautiful Bess at the old inn and of the terrible fate they both meet. The mysterious ending of the poem suggests that the lovers' spirits still linger on the edge of the heath. Their haunting story certainly remains alive in the words of Alfred Noyes and in Robins Class' performance!
