Irish Dancing – A Busy Year.
The Irish dancers have had a very busy year. They have competed in three festivals, Ballyclare, Portadown and our own Class Festival.
Ballyclare was very early starts with the pupils having to be in school for 7.40 am ready to get the bus. The children danced extremely well gaining various awards and the P4/5 team won the Ballyclare Festival cup with their Soldiers’ Joy.
For Portadown the children had a more civilized start, arriving at the Civic Centre for 9 am. Here again the children danced extremely well and received a variety of medals.
Our Class Festival, held at the beginning of June, was a great success. I would like to say thank you to our adjudicator Mrs Helen McStravick. The dancers performed very well once again going home with lots of medals. Thank you to our sponsors.
It will be sad to say goodbye to this year’s P7 girls, who have achieved so much in their school dancing career. Thank you for all your support and I wish you every success in your future schools. I hope you will still continue your love for dancing in the future.
I also have to say thank you to all the parents for all their support and trying to understand the unusual language the dancers and I have use.
