Colaiste Muire Students Celebrate Earth Hour

The dining assembly of Colaiste Muire, Cobh was a hive of activity on Friday the 30th March from 1-2. There was a sense of anticipation and excitement as the lights were dimmed, electricity was unplugged and Mrs Bilginer and Miss Ormond addressed the crowd. The community of Colaiste Muire, Cobh decided to present an ’Unplugged for the Planet’ concert.  All were gathered to highlight Earth Hour.

The school community gathered together to listen to students from all years as they performed acoustically. Aidan O’Rourke opened the show with a fantastic piece on the piano. We then listened to Niamh and Alison as they gave their rendition of ‘When we were Young’ and ‘Earth Song’. The entire crowd went wild when our Irish teacher Mr. Long joined with our fantastic traditional group to entertain us with a trad set. Finally our transition year band went down a treat as they entertained us in fine voice.

Throughout the hour both presenters kept highlighting the importance of Earth Hour and encouraged students to “unplug” and become involved in Earth Hour Saturday 31st March.
