The choir is no stranger to high level media performance having participated in 'Excellence at Work' – Television Broadcast; A Christmas Carol - BBC Northern Ireland and Ulster School Choir of the Year winning the Regional Heat on three occasions followed by the coveted title of UTV Primary School Choir of the Year in 1998. Other musical highlights include performing in Musical Concerts in St Mark's Church, Portadown and St Patrick's Cathedral, Armagh for Northern Ireland charities.
The senior Choir were honoured to visit the switching on of the village Christmas lights. The ceremony took place in the grounds of Waring House, at the kind invitation of Mr & Mrs Harnett. The children sang three pieces:
Away in a Manger
Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer! (Mrs Erskine and Mr McCambley were rather amazed at the children’s gusto rendition of this last piece. Sorry all grandmothers!
We were so pleased to see a huge representation of our parents mingling freely in the grounds of Waring House with an estimated congregation of 350!
The carols were interspersed with readings. The prayers were offered up by our Chairperson, the Rev Canon Bryan Martin.
We love see the school linked with the Church of Ireland and Waringstown Presbyterian Church communities who organised the event under the direction of Rev B Sanderson.
Thankfully the weather stayed dry and the children enjoyed a sweet treat too which was most welcome.
There is NO Choir Practice this afternoon.
The Senior Choir finished today with an extended Lunch and lolly on the MUGA today After Lunch.
The Choir performed last night in Emmanuel Church, Lurgan last night at a concert to raise funds for Charlene Barr's Hidden Treasures School.
Sincere thanks to all children for their loyal attendance this year to the choir.
Best wishes go also to the Primary 7 children too as they are promoted to their Secondary Schools. Please join the choirs in your new schools! Mrs Erskine and Mr McCambley will miss you greatly from the choir.

The Senior Choir raised up the Titanic with more than a hint of irony today from the landmark Titanic building. The choir performed three pieces from the replica grand staircase: Be Still my Soul / You Raise me Up, Thank you for the Music of Abba fame and Round by the Riverside.
The choir were privileged to perform to almost 1000 delegates at the Young Enterprise business event. Some children exchanged high 5’s with Marc Mallett from UTV. Mrs Erskine was sure that Jim Eastwood, from the BBC Apprentice programme, winked at her as the choir were singing! She also said he was singing along! A fan of the Senior Choir!
We are incredibly proud of our Senior Choir and how well they represent our school in public.
