Let the Music Take you Away

On the 22nd May, some students from 5th and 6th class who play the Ukulele had the opportunity to perform in the Dunamaise Theatre.

Paddock NS also joined us that day, but unfortunately Mountmellick couldn’t make it. When we arrived and took our seats, we each received a goodie bag as a surprise. It was a great start to the day.

We were very nervous to go up and play in front of 6th class and the other school but eventually we found the courage. When we went down to play we could feel our hearts beating very fast. Once we started playing all our fears disappeared.

When the show was about to finish, Paddock NS and our school all formed two circles. We all played ‘Dance the Night Away’ together. After that Terry, James and Denise told us that we would have a raffle. A girl from Paddock NS and another girl from 6th class in Scoil Bhríde both won a ukulele.

It was a very enjoyable day but we were tired afterwards. When we arrived back in school we were told we had a homework pass. It was a great end to a fun day!
