Watching the All-Island School Choir Competition for the last few Sunday evenings on RTÉ has been an absolute joy.
The talent of all the choirs performing has been wonderful and of a very high standard.
And the short introductory films of school life by the pupils themselves before each performance, brought tears to my eyes, as such a school life is alien to what I experienced back in the 1960s. I do not recall one happy day of my long school life.
So, to today’s generation I say enjoy your school life and be happy. For be assured, from the evidence of your own excellent film-making, all aspects of school life have improved beyond my expectations, and for the better.
