Along with children from 40 other schools we sang and danced,accompanied by The Cross Border Orchestra Of Ireland. It was very exciting singing and dancing with so many other children and there was a great buzz at the concert. You can get a feel for the atmosphere by clicking on the slideshow above. Thanks to George Carroll for providing us with the Photos. Thanks also to Ms Flynn and Ms Biesty who helped out on the night. Well done to all the children involved!

Songwriting workshop

In February 25 choir members took part in a Songwriting workshop with Kenn from Craftzone. They wrote their own song and recorded it using special software and equipment. The song is called The Maelers Song and they even recorded a video to go with the song. Below you can see some photos of the workshop, some of our talented members even made up dance moves to go along with the song. We hope to have a link to the video and song up on the website soon.
