Our school was selected last year to take part in the Creative Schools Initiative funded by the Arts Council.
The project, chosen by the pupils was to create and record their own song and music video and what a fantastic job they did. Many thanks to our Creative Artist Jane Hayes, Music Producer Gary McCarthy, Creative Schools Staff Co-ordinators and members of the Student Creative Council for all their hard work.
