18/03/2020 FUN AND COMPETITION AT LORETO COLLEGE’S SCÓR NA GAEILGE

13th March 2020 saw a day of excitement, entertainment, enthusiasm and most importantly, enjoyment. The Irish Department hosted their annual Year Eight Scór na Gaeilge; a celebration of craft, music, dance, drama and quiz.

In the run up to the big day, the energetic and enthusiastic Year Eight classes made a fantastic contribution in their thorough in-class preparations. Songs were learned off by heart, creative and inspired posters were produced and dances were practised to perfection.

To start off the morning’s proceedings, year 9 and 13 Irish pupils lead an Assembly celebrating St Patrick, Irish language and culture and praying for health and happiness throughout the world.

Next there was an all-encompassing quiz tested our Year Eight pupils, who rose to the task and answered the challenging questions laid before them. Additionally, the pre-submitted Irish language posters and the traditional or cultural outfits worn by pupils were judged on adherence to the guidelines, creativity and originality.

In the afternoon each class courageously took to the floor and performed their class song or dance. This was followed by the smaller group acts; with amazing singing, recitals, instrument playing and both Irish dancing and modern dancing being enjoyed by all. This session ended with a grand finale when the school traditional musicians from the Siamsa group ‘Tigh Tara’ performed for the year eight pupils. This was a fantastic event which showcased just how talented Loreto pupils are.

Throughout the day each class accumulated marks from all events and prizes were awarded accordingly. A prizegiving was held to reward pupils for their tremendous efforts and class 8C were crowned winners of Scór na Gaeilge 2020.

Irish Department members Bean Uí Dhoinn and Iníon Mhic Íomhair thanked all Year Eight pupils, who prepared and participated with fervent animation. Hearty congratulations were extended on behalf of the Irish Department to the winners of each section and particularly to the overall Scór winners; 8C.
