South East Wheelchair basketball tournament
All Ireland Transition Drama Festival
4E, along with Mairéad Butler (4D) attended the 18th All Ireland Transition Drama Festival in Macroom in January. 4E competed in the ‘Light Entertainment’ category with their energetic take on the opening scene of ‘Grease’, while Mairéad Butler entered her play, ‘Group Chat’ in the ‘Drama’ category. The feedback from the adjudicator was excellent, with ‘Group Chat’ being praised for its ingenuity. The adjudicator suggested that Mairéad write a longer play, which is certainly a vote of confidence in her talents! The adjudicator was extremely impressed with ‘Grease’ and felt it was a strong contender for the final of the competition. He complimented 4E on their singing and dancing, as well as their bond as a group, which he felt contributed to the performance overall. We’ll watch this space to see if we get to the final in February!
Under the Sea Workshop
were led by two Marine Biologists and was very hands on. Students had the opportunity to dissect many
different sea creatures and to see some similarities with the human body.
