School Choir of the Year

12th Feb 2020

Congratulations to the school choir who today competed at BBC School choir of the year at Stranmillis University College in Belfast. The choir sang ‘The Girl with the Buckles on her Shoes’ and ‘The Lily and the Rose’. They gave a super performance of both songs.  The adjudicators praised them for their commitment to the songs, their diction, their phrasing and their musicality.  They were a credit to the school and to their families.

Thanks to all the parents who left them off at school at 7 am, immaculately turned out.

Thanks also to Miss Murphy for her dedication, enthusiasm and hard work in helping the children produce their most beautiful singing.

Although the choir did not progress on this occasion everyone felt that it was a really valuable learning experience and a very enjoyable day out. Definitely worth repeating next year!

Well done everyone. Another great team effort!
