Clarin College Athenry

All Shook Up - School Musical


Dear Parent/Stakeholder

Clarin College is excited to be putting together its first Transition Year Musical since the challenges associated with Covid-19. The Musical we will be performing is the Elvis Presley-themed ‘All Shook Up. So it will surely be a show to remember.

In standard academic years, our school tries to provide the best holistic development opportunities for our Transition Year students. To achieve this goal, we produce a musical to enable the students to develop and grow in the following areas:

  1. Enhanced language capabilities
  2. Improved memory
  3. Strengthened hand-eye coordination
  4. Music appreciation
  5. Teamwork
  6. Leadership and confidence
  7. Mental processing & problem-solving

However, the most important experience we hope for them is that the students have fun, and develop lifelong memories. None of this would be possible without the support of local businesses. As such, we are sending this email to see if you would be interested in sponsoring this year’s show. A business, where they can afford to do so, is invited to help by supporting our show.
