Fifth and sixth class children from St. Colmcille’s Senior National School Choir and Grúpa Ceoil join past pupil, Emilie Conway and her quartet in a song that affirms, even if you have a disability, or you don’t quite fit in in school, or a pandemic turns the world topsy turvy, with a little kindness and creativity, it all works out!
Initially planned as an in-person collaboration, this project has been adapted as a virtual one in line with Covid-19 restrictions. Pupils who are in the Choir and in the Grúpa Ceoil are busy learning, practising and recording the song at home and creating artwork for the video. We are all very excited to see how it comes together for launch on June 13!!
Special thanks to St. Colmcille’s SNS especially Emilie’s fourth class teacher, Deputy Principal John Murphy, and Principal, Brian McGowan, for their facilitation, enthusiasm and support of the project and its re-adaptation. A big thank you to Grúpa Ceoil directors, Sarah Jane Woods and Alison Neville, Kate Kirwan, Sarah O’Keeffe, Maurice O’Keeffe; and to the Choir directors, Sinead O’Brien, Emer O’Connor, Sue Synnott and Tara Walsh for all their assistance, support and enthusiasm!
A huge thank you to all the children of St. Colmcille’s and their parents and guardians for their essential and beautiful contribution to this work!
