[b]Scór na mBunscoileanna[/b]
Preparations are about to begin for Scór na mBunscoileanna in Leitrim. Scór competitions for National Schools have been run very successfully in Leitrim for the past two years. The idea, which was initiated by the late Cormac MacGiolla, has now been taken up by many counties.
Competitions are run in Figure Dance, Set Dance, Solo Singing, Ballad Group, Recitation, Novelty Act, Question Time and Music and the winners in each section receive medals. All pupils attending national school are eligible to compete for their own school.
[b]New Solo Items[/b]
This year a new venture to help the smaller schools is the introduction of Solo Dance and Solo Instrumental Music to the competitions. Many schools may have one young person who can play a musical instrument or one dancer. They can now enter those solo competitions also. It is hoped that many more schools will enter this year in these and other events. The important thing is to get the maximum number of boys and girls taking part. Full details will be sent to schools shortly.
Scór na mBunscoileanna will take place on 9th and 10th November at venues to be arranged.
