Year 8 in the mood for Music!

Our Year 8s attended a one-hour performance and workshop given by the Ulster Orchestra in Girdwood Community Hub yesterday. What an experience!

It was a privilege for the boys to have experienced such a thrilling performance from our county’s professional orchestra in such an intimate setting. They especially liked the Star War
