Cork Church of Ireland School Wins National Dairy Council Competition

Last month, on Friday 27th April, St. Luke’s National School, O’Mahoney’s Avenue in Cork was announced as the winner of the National Dairy Council’s competition to create a jingle for Moocrew’s future advertisement campaign.

Ms. Goggin and the children in Fifth and Sixth classes worked hard together to create a fantastic rap which encourages school children to drink milk. They had great fun pooling their ideas as well as performing the final rap. A name was pulled out of a hat and so Grace Maher had the opportunity and daunting task of performing the rap live on Today FM’s ‘Ian Dempsey’s Breakfast Show’. She was thrilled to speak live on air along with Principal Ms. Jacqueline Collier after winning the national competition. The rest of the school were thrilled to hear of Fifth and Sixth classes’ achievement and the roar of delight that went out from the classrooms of O’Mahoney’s Avenue were likely heard in Today FM’s studios without the aid of any recording equipment!

Their winning rap will be professionally recorded and used in Moocrew’s future campaign. The entire school will be treated to a trip to Airfield in Dundrum in Dublin, receive free school milk throughout the next academic year and enjoy using new sports equipment to the value of €1,500.
