We took part in Scór last night in Hollymount Hall. We had our 8 hand group entered in the Figure Dancing – Nora, Tiernan, Mikey, Eva, Padraic, Aoibheann, Cameron and Anna. They danced to the Sweets of May and did a great job representing the school! Well done to you all and we will miss Nora and Tiernan next year – after three years dancing for the school, last night was their last time in Scór as they move onto to secondary school next year.
Anna Farragher represented us in the Solo SInging where she sang The Star of the County Down. Nerves were a factor but we think she did a great job!
Next on stage for us was Padraic Godwin with his poem – the Lotto Song. Padraic had the audience in stitches as he recited his poem.
We had an all girls music group this year, Anna, Eva, Nora and Aoibheann performed The Sally Gardens and Terry Teehans Polka. They too did a smashing job and rounded off a great nights participation by Cloghans Hill.
At the end of the night, the results were in!!! We had lots of anxious faces awaiting them. We were over the moon and the roof nearly came off the hall when Padraic was announced as the winner in the recitation! Well done Padraic, we are very proud of you and our very first Scór win!!!! Well done to all the pupils and thank you to Sharon who helped the music group and Catherine who does our Irish dancing. Another big thanks to our supporters, chief among them Cian, Karen and Jack and all the parents who came to cheer us on!!
We wish Padraic all the best in the county final on April 16th in Breaffy!
