Success at Ballyclare Festival

In March this year the music department was hive of activity as we were preparing for our local music festival. We had a vast number of pupils entered in many different classes including solos, ensembles, orchestra and choir. We had a very successful week of competing and brought home 8 trophies. The adjudicator was very impressed with the variety of music performed and the number of pupils who entered. She wrote many encouraging comments about our performances but also areas for improvement. We would like to say congratulations to all the pupils who took part in the festival.  Everyone performed very well and we are very proud of your achievements. We would also like to thank the organising committee of the festival for their hard work throughout the week and for the cups of tea that kept us teachers going. Below is a list of the results.
