Fairview Primary in fine voice

Fairview Primary School choir were in fine voice when they came third in BBC Radio Ulster School Choir of the Year Junior Final on 30 April.

Pupil Tori O’Hara, had a great time throughout the competition, saying

I found School Choir of the Year an exciting experience and an unforgettable memory. Our choir had been practising every day and had a lot of fun and laughs.

We tried our best but disappointingly we didn’t get through to the knock out round. We loved getting the opportunity to sing at the Ulster Hall and hear all the other wonderful school choirs. It was a great experience and a great day out with friends which I will never forget

 Paula Matthews, principal of Fairview Primary was delighted with the dedication shown by her pupils and teachers.

As a school community, we are incredibly proud of our senior choir coming third in the BBC Radio Ulster School Choir of the Year competition,

said Paula.

Considering how many schools entered the competition, and the incredibly high standard of choirs we encountered throughout each stage, we were absolutely delighted to make the final. 

I would like to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of Mrs Norris and Mrs Penney who take the choir week after week.  The quality of the three primary choirs in the final was astounding and for Fairview to be performing at this level is testament to the skill of the teachers and tremendously talented pupils.
