2018 Queensland Premierships & Flora Lynagh Medal recipients

The competitive part of the year finished up at the Queensland Premierships, a Feis with sections ranging from Novice through to Open reserve. It was a massive weekend of dancing for all, with Scoil Ard Rince dancers achieving fabulous results across the board. We took out 4 Titles, 6 runners-up and a further 11 podium places, with many more wonderful placings along the way.

The Bronze Flora Lynagh Medal is an award given to the highest achieving dancer in each age group, each year and is presented at the Premierships. Each dancer accumulates points from both AIDA competitions as well as private Feiseanna. The overall Gold Medal is then awarded to the dancer with highest total from this group.

This year we had 4 Scoil Ard Rince dancers come away with the Bronze Medals. (Below) Kate Edgar (14 years), Paige Blonk (12 years), Lana Jones (9 years), Freya Jones (11 years)

Our very own Lana Jones (Below) went on to win the much coveted Gold Medal, a wonderful achievement funded totally by AIDA QLD, in recognition of the work and commitment of Open dancers. Congratulations to all of our Flora Lynagh Medal recipients on an outstanding achievement for your age group.

World Championship Fundraising

Help us realise our dreams!

On 28th March, 9 dancers from the Scoil Ard Rince School of Irish Dance in Brisbane QLD will be heading to the 2015 World Championships in Montreal. This group of dancers, some of whom won the Australian National Championships in October, will be competing together in the teams event. The girls, ranging in age from 12 to 24, will also compete in the solo competitions representing their State as well as Australia.

Along with all the hard work the dancers are putting in, we realise that funds are needed to do such a trip. All families have gathered together to organise events and fundraising ideas to help these children live their dream of representing Australia at the World Championships. I hope that together with your help, we can make this dream come true for these wonderful dancers.
