The students of Coláiste Mhuire, Ballygar presented a wonderful array of culture in the school Assembly Hall on Fri. 20th Sept. as part of the town’s festivities. Upon entering the school the audience was greeted by L. C. students Cuisha King and Oisín Gately who kindly directed the guests towards the display of Art and Woodwork projects completed by the students under the tutelage of their teachers Ms Cuddy and Mr Madden. This was followed by a highly entertaining concert by the Music students. There is a wonderful array of talent in the school and this was evident in what the audience both saw and heard. A wide variety of music genres were performed including classical, pop, traditional Irish and country in addition to songs from the musicals.
