With Loughries Summer School fast approaching - beginning Monday 25th July through to Friday 29th July, I found this photo from a couple of years ago.
Since the summer school commenced in 2007, we have helped over 350 children learn a little more of their Ulster Scots Culture. Many of the children in this photo (who are now in High or Grammar School) have went on to join pipe bands, flute bands, play the fife & lambeg drum, Scottish highland & country dance, play the fiddle and tin whistle - just some of the success we have achieved with our children.
It is rewarding to see the children grow and mature into young adults - playing many different instruments and enjoying their chosen musical traditions within the Ulster Scots Culture!
Looking forward to the 'Class of 2011' - should be great!
