Our senior classroom participated in Peace Proms during Spring term. It involved two trips to University of Limerick for a workshop & performance day ???! It was an amazing experience which we will remember forever.
Peace Proms engages children and young people in music and enriches their lives through exceptional musical experiences and performances. It celebrates culture and diversity and promotes peace, unity and tolerance through music.
