Culture Day 2019

The CBS was delighted to once again to be involved in Culture Night 2019.

The purpose of Culture Day and Night is to wrap up in culture, as venues and public spaces across the island of Ireland opened their doors to host a programme of free day-time and late-night entertainment, as part of an all-island celebration of arts, heritage and culture.

The students presented a variety of acts in the Teach Ceoil, Ennistymon at 12 noon on the 20th September 2019. The event was kicked off with the CBS Trad Band, playing a wonderful set of Ryan’s Slip Jig, the Humours of Ennistymon Jig and Cooley’s Reel. This was followed by a presentation on sport in their culture, pop music, piano solo’s, a recital of Seamus Heaney’s ‘Blackberry Picking’, a discussion on creativity in education, and the CBS rock band performed an original song created last year in school called ‘Walk Before You Run’.

On the day a video compiled in school was shown: this video involved students and staff discussing what culture means to them.

Culture is in integral element of our identity; this was reflected by a wonderfully diverse and captivating performance by the students of the CBS.
