Senior Orchestra Win Peter Killian Cup at Feis Ceoil!

A huge congratulations to our Senior Orchestra who scored a fantastic score of 94% and won their competition at Feis Ceoil today in the RDS.

Also a huge congratulations to our Junior Orchestra who scored a fantastic score of 90% and came 2nd in the competition.

The children played their hearts out and it very evident through their performance that they had all worked extremely hard to achieve those results today. As the adjudicator said today “they made my day”, what a lovely statement to make, happy children hearing that!

This would not be possible to achieve without the dedication of Ruth, Margaret & Katie or the efforts and willingness of the students to learn. It also would not be possible without the teachers, the committee members & the parents who make themselves available so that the children can fulfill dreams and make memories like today. So, thank you all for all the help, support & dedication it is greatly appreciated by all 😊

Each and every one of the children were a pleasure to bring off for the day, their manners were exceptional, they are a credit to each one of you and a credit to St. Canice’s School.

I would also like to thank Mrs Comerford, Kay & the school teachers, for all their assistance, guidance & support throughout the year leading up to this. As you can imagine with 400+ children taking part in the music programme a lot of internal coordination takes place so children get the opportunity to participate in our music programme. This would not be possible without this support so a massive thank you is well deserved to the school.

Feis Ceoil Interviews and Filming

Feis Ceoil have been in touch and are launching the upcoming festival online this year. They would like to film our senior orchestra and chat with some of the children as part of the launch. This will take place on Friday 2nd March directly after school. The senior orchestra will therefore be required to stay in school that afternoon to be filmed. The filming shouldn’t take too long but we will let you know all the details as soon as they are announced. For now we’d just like the children to keep that afternoon free with more details to follow. It is a huge honour for the music programme to be invited to launch Feis Ceoil this year and it’s great recognition after our orchestra’s travelling to Dublin to participate for the last 32 years.

Feis Ceoil 2017

The Junior and Senior Orchestras will be participating in the annual Feis Ceoil Competition on Friday 31st March in the RDS, Dublin-please keep this date free in your diary!  More details will follow as we have them.

In order to transport the children up to and and back down from the RDS on the day we will need to hire at least 2 buses. In order to keep costs down for parents we would kindly request if any friends of the programme felt in the position to provide some level of sponsorship towards the hire it would be gratefully received. If you would like to assist please contact Shirley 0851252233

Finally can all parents check if they have any red orchestra sweatshirts at home please? If you do and it still fits your child can you ask your child to let the adult know who is sizing them for a sweatshirt. If you have a sweatshirt(s) that are now too small/extra sweatshirts please return these ASAP. Many thanks as always for your kind co-operation.
