This week the students from 1st, 5th and 6th Class took part in the Connacht Finals of the Féile Scoldramaíocht competition. Ghlac Rang a haon, cúig agus a sé páirt sa Féile Dramaíochta i Indreabhán sna Dramaí ‘ An Greasaí agus na Síoga, Rumplestiltskin agus Píobaire Hamelin. D’eirigh go hiontach leo.
The children worked extremely hard to prepare for the big day and were a credit to their parents and teachers.
There are over 30 schools competing in the Connacht finals and the adjudicator gave special mention to the excellent behaviour and overall politeness of our students. She also gave special mention to our music and costumes and art work. A huge thank you from us all must go to Mrs McCafferty and her son Joseph for all their work as always in the background.
The standard of Gaeilge is very high and competing against Irish speaking schools is a challenge but one that we have embraced. Today is the final day of the competition. We will post the results on our school website as soon as we receive them. Fingers crossed we may get through to the All-Ireland finals which will be in Mullingar in April.
Finally a special thank you and well done to Ms.Sloyan,Ms.Henry and Mr.Rushe who as always put so much into the children’s performances. We thank them both sincerely as always for the hard work interest and enthusiasm.
Maith sibh go léir!
