Dalriada's Christmas Concert has been described as the start of the Christmas season!  The choirs and
orchestra, as well as other groups and ensembles have been rehearsing for some time now and are almost ready to stage another superb evening of Christmas music.

Under the direction of Mrs Heather Montgomery, this is sure to be an evening not to be missed.  The
exceptionally talented and renowned young musicians and singers will perform Christmas favourites and rousing carols.

Due to the very large numbers of pupils involved across every year group, and the popularity of the concert, it is taking place over two evenings, - Tuesday 16th December and Wednesday 17th December 2014.  Tickets will be on sale from the school office from Wednesday 26th November and are priced £5.  There will be light refreshments on the evening.

Whether it starts the Christmas season or not for you, there is no doubt it will add to it!

On Saturday morning Dalriada XI hockey team travelled to the Civil Service Park in Belfast to play Bloomfield in the second round of the Schools Cup and came away with a magnificent 2-1 victory.

It was an exciting game with Emma Chestnutt and Sara Jamison making good runs up the line, great
tackles made in defence by Diane Ramsay, Tara McConaghie, Emma Johnston and Rachel Taggart and brilliant play in centre midfield by Lynne Macauley. However just before the half time whistle Bloomfield took the lead. Just after Captain Lynn Macaulay had to leave the field due to a head injury but Dalriada fought back hard. A great ball from Eva Carson to Rachael Kennedy resulted in a brilliant finish and Dalriada's equaliser.
