We were too excited to notice the time passing on the journey up to Cork. It was the 21st of May and the 6th class were going to the Triskel Art Centre in Cork for the Regional final of Our World Irish Aid Awards. We arrived at the Triskel Art Centre after several one way streets and involountary detours. We entered the art centre and were warmly welcomed by a friendly member of staff who showed us to the hall. We were one of the first of 15 schools to arrive but there was already a buzz in the room. Everyone was socialising and mingling. We got changed into our costumes and enjoyed refreshments.
Once everyone was seated the Presenter begain. He welcomed us all to the Our World Irish Aid awards and told us why we were here. Then we had great fun learning a Tanzanian Song with dance moves. By now the atmosphere was much more relaxed. We heard from a Tanzenian man about his experience growing up in Africa. There was a ten minute break were we viewed each others projects. Finally we were awarded with a plaque for making it to the regional final and the three schools who were going through to the national final.
Overall it was a brilliant day and we all enjoyed ourselves.
