The National Mod in Paisley

On Sunday the 13th of October Port Ellen Primary School Gaelic choir set off to their fun and exciting Mod in Paisley where they would compete against other choirs from different schools.

They stayed in a Premiere Inn and got their dinner, lunch and breakfast provided for them.

On Monday the 14th of of October they all set off for their competitions where they sang the Unison, Puirt-a-beul and two part harmony.

They did very well and they won all their competitions!!!!

That night they went to the concert where they sang their songs and it was recorded to go onto T.V.

In the morning they had to leave to go home . On the ferry they sang their songs as entertainment.

When they were going off the ferry the pipers piped them off.

The Pier Opening

On Thursday 30th August all of Port Ellen primary were invited to the pier opening in Port Ellen. When we got there there were a lot of people and there were some of the pipe band piping. We also got balloons and we made our own flags. There were 3 people announcing the pier was open. Then the choir sang at the end and that closed the opening ceremony.

Our Achievements At The Mod

On Sunday 16th October the Port Ellen Primary Gaelic Choir flew off on an aeroplane to Stornoway.  It took us 40 minutes to get there and it was 20 minutes less than what it normally is.  The next day was Monday 17th October that was the day of the mod, the people that were doing poems and solos had to get up quite early to go and do them.  I got a 4th for my poem and for my solo I got a score of 178.  My choir did really well, we won all of our songs that is our 2 unisons, 2 two parts and our Puirt a beul.
