Congratulations to the children in sixth class who took part in the recent Peace Proms Concert which took place in the RDS on Saturday 1st February. The girls have been very busy rehearsing for the last few months under the guidance of Ms. Magner and Ms. Kieran. This was the first time the school have participated in this event and we hope it won't be the last! The children joined forces with 2,500 other children from schools all over Ireland (North and South) to sing songs such as a Queen Medley, Disney Medley and a Pop Medley. They were joined by the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland and famous conductor Greg Beardsell. We had a fantastic day - video clips of the event can be found on our school Twitter page.
The Cross Border Orchestra (CBOI) was established in 1995 as a peace initiative and is composed of over 100 exceptionally talented young musicians from all over Ireland and Northern Ireland. Over the past 21 years, the CBOI has played an important role in building and nurturing vital cross border and cross community relations. The CBOI is conducted by one of the UK’s most celebrated and outstanding young conductors, Mr. Greg Beardsell. The orchestra are always looking for new members and details on how to join can be found here https://peaceproms.com/join-the-cboi/
