Music plays a very important role in the lives of our pupils and teachers here in Burrane National School. All children from Junior Infants to Sixth class learn how to play the tinwhistle. Below are some of the activities we engage in to help develop and foster that love of music.
Seinn na Óg
Burrane National School, takes part in Seinn na Óg annually. This is an excellent opportunity to encourage our children to play, sing and dance in Church settings using our Irish Traditional Music. This year the Seinn na Nóg concert will be held in Kilrush Cathedral on the 31st May 2018 8 - 9:15pm
As well as singing the children of Burrane National school will play instruments such as the banjo, concertina , flute, violin and tinwhistle,
