The Department of Education is pleased to announce the opening of a new round of Creative Clusters
The deadline for receipt of applications is FRIDAY 12th May 2023
The three Rosscarbery schools, Ardagh Boys’ School, St Mary’s Primary School and Mount St Michael Secondary School, took part in the Creative Cluster Initiative. This two year initiative, offered by the Department of Education in conjunction with the Local Education Centres, gives funding to schools to allow them to work collectively on a creative project, that enables the creative potential of students.
The three schools in Rosscarbery came together to explore song writing and the process involved in bringing a song from its initial idea to its finished product. In the first year of the initiative, the pupils completed song writing workshops with John Spillane, rap writing workshops with Garry McCarthy from GMC Beats and African Drumming with Patrick Naughton. In the second year, they explored the audio recording process with John Fitzgerald and brought the songs they had written in the first year, with John Spillane, to life, while exploring video with Greg Mulcahy.
They have written, recorded and performed the following three songs – A Place I Call Home by Ardagh Boys’ School, Rosscarbery by St Mary’s Primary School and Town of Angels by Mount St Michael’s Secondary School.
