We had a fantastic week at Arklow Music Festival with every class entering a competition. We came away with a third place, a 2nd place and 4 first place trophies!! More than this was the feeling of jobs well done, rehearsals that were enjoyed, collaboration with friends, face paint and costumes that added to the fun and the real life embodiment of the drama and arts curriculum.
I would like to thank the teachers for their direction and enthusiasm. I would like to thank all staff for their ideas and help with costumes, facepaint and all the other ways they helped.
I would like to congratulate each and every little actor who so bravely stood up to perform today and on Monday – it’s not an easy thing to do! You were all just amazing and we are so proud of you!
Performing at Arklow Music Festival is a memory I treasure from childhood and I hope it will be the same for all our pupils!
