OPPORTUNITY FOR PRIMARY SCHOOLS TO WIN A WORKSHOP WITH JOHN SPILLANE

Working with Cork County Council and Creative Ireland towards achieving one of Creative Ireland’s key goals to ’enable the creative potential of every child and young person’, the Heritage in Schools Scheme and Cork County Council invites applications from primary schools in county Cork for an opportunity to explore their local heritage with Heritage in Schools Specialist Áine Brosnan and modern-day bard John Spillane. Shortlisted schools will visit a local ancient site with Áine to learn about the people who lived, worked and played there. With the help of Áine the children will compose and record an ‘ode’ to a great hero of old. The recordings will be sent to John Spillane to judge and the winning school will receive a workshop with John to develop and perform their song.

 To enter simply: Email a short paragraph and tell us what local heritage site you would like to visit and include your school name, roll number, contact details as well as classe(s) and numbers. Email heritageinschools@heritagecouncil.ie before 5pm on Tuesday, 7th May.
