June Activities 2021

Music generation

Music generation is Ireland’s national music education programme, whose aim is to provide high quality music education to children and young people.

We had a visit recently from music generation’s very talented instructors. They gave lessons in drumming to our younger classes and dance lessons to everybody from 2nd to 6th classes. It was all great fun and all the boys and girls learned a lot.
