Ceol Ireland attended the Irish Primary Principals Network Conference and Exhibition on 25th to 28th January, 2012. The response to the Ceol Stand was very positive. Many principals whose schools have been using the Ceol materials expressed their satisfaction and even joy about the programmes. Many commented that the lesson plans and resources are great fun, easy to follow and clearly build up the teachers’ confidence in teaching music, unlike any other programmes.
Those who have not yet used the programmes were very interested in their comprehensiveness, clarity, child-friendliness and professionally produced products. Ceol is expecting a new wave of interested schools in the coming months, following on from this interest.
Ceol is going from strength to strength in building programmes for all levels in pre- and primary schools. By June 2012, there will be lesson plans, professional development DVDs, resource materials and CDs for all pre- and primary children. There are specially descounted bundles for those wishing to go for more than one stage at a time. See these special offer bundles on http://www.ceolireland.ie
