On Friday morning, with an early call for the bus, Ms. Moy's and Mrs. Flanagan's classes headed off once again to compete in the Choral Verse competition.
Ms. Moy's class took to the stage first, and performed the hilarious poem "Our Teacher's a football fanatic" brilliantly.
Lastly, Mrs. Flanagan's Class performed the comical anecdotal poem "Daddy fell into the pond" with great flair.
To huge delight, Ms.Moy's Class were awarded joint 2nd place and Mrs Flanagan's Class won 1st Prize, receiving a beautiful trophy for all their hard work.
A huge Thank you to Ms.Moy, Mrs. Flanagan, Maríosa Crawford and Ms. Gallinagh for all their hard work, and for accompanying the children to Strabane.
A super achievement, and a great time was had by all.
