CETB School of Music Junior Musician of the Year Robert O’Halloran


GCC Music

Hearty congratulations to GCC 2nd year music student Robert O’Halloran. Robert was awarded Junior Musician of the Year in the CETB School of Music last Saturday.
He played “To a Wild Rose” by MacDowell & “Early Bird” by Baxter on his clarinet.  Well done Robert!


Happy Christmas
As we approach the end of this school term, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. In a year like no other, we would like to thank you for your continuous support since the school reopened in September. It is nothing short of remarkable that in a school of our size, we have had less than a handful of positive Covid cases and none of these were deemed to have any close contacts in the school. While there are no guarantees, the cooperation of parents, staff, students and all in our school community has been a major contributor to the successful reopening and continued operation of our school. While there is light at the end of the tunnel, the early part of the New Year will bring further challenges. To this end it is essential that we all take time over this Christmas holiday period to recharge our batteries so we are prepared and ready to meet the demands that we must all face together as a school community in 2021.

Have a happy and safe Christmas.
