News & Updates January 2017



Happy New Year from everyone at Scoil Rince Ceim Oir! It has been a busy few months for us, take a look at what we have been up to since our last update...

We are delighted to present our new Facebook page, please fee free to join the group Scoil Rince Ceim Oir

Ceim Oir Open Feis 2017 – October 28th & 29th



January - TCRG Lucy English chaperoned 6 of our older dancers (Natalie O’Hare, Sarah C.Nutley, Roisin Bates, Dani Mohan, Elise Gibson and Shannon Morrissey) to India to dance for the launch of a new Multicultural Television channel. They performed a 30 minute routine to 30 thousand people and the feedback was incredible! Given their minor celebrity status that followed, they were taken to the Rainforest and to the river, got to meet Elephants and Monkeys and even squeezed in some time for mass! What a fabulous experience!



Christmas Treat...100 Ceim Oir kids along with parents and teachers ventured to the West End to watch School of Rock at the New London Theatre. I’m sure you’ll all agree it was a fab night and the show was great! Thank you Julie Chambers for all the hard work that went into organizing the outing – we hope you weren’t too scarred and we look forward to the next theatre outing!



December - Thank you Myra O’Donovan for organizing another fantastic raffle for the Tommy Hollis fund. The fabulous prizes included a kids hamper, pamper hamper, chocolate hamper and champagne hamper (to name but a few) meant that we raised £510 for the fund. This is a charity close to our hearts and supports vulnerable children in the West London area. I know that Tommy Hollis’s parents were overwhelmed with the amount raised from just one raffle and are delighted to receive our annual donation – keep up the good work, its all for an amazing cause.



We managed to send 170 Christmas cards to wounded veterans as part of the Help for Heroes campaign! The handmade cards from the kids were created at the Christmas Class Feis and the kind messages from all our lovely parents meant a lot to the soldiers who might not otherwise have received anything at Christmas. They do so much for our country and this small gesture meant so much to them and was our way of giving back. I think it’s safe to say that we managed to put a smile on some of their faces and is definitely the start of a new Ceim Oir Christmas Class Feis tradition.



We hosted our Christmas Class Feis in December at Drayton Manor School. Our adjudicator was impressed by the fantastic standard of dancing throughout the day from the youngest to the oldest and we were proud of each and every one of you. We were delighted to have Santa appear throughout the day especially when he was handing out lots of festive treats! The festive fancy dress and Christmas card competitions were difficult to judge as you all did such an amazing job! Congrats to Amber Ford for winning the Best Xmas Card creation and to Laura Chambers for the Best Christmas Spirit Fancy dress outfit.
