Cork singing sensation, 15-year-old Allie Sherlock, has recorded a special performance with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra which will be played on RTÉ’s Home School Hub's final show.
After 58 hours of lessons and 560,000 streams on the RTÉ Player, RTÉ’s much-appreciated Home School Hub winds to a close tomorrow with a big finale that will include a special graduation concert featuring the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and Allie Sherlock.
During Home School Hub’s three months on air, which reached children nationwide through learning, laughter, and even the Modh Coinniallach, the teachers on screen – Cliona, Ray, and John – became household names.
"Working on Home School Hub has been a wonderful experience," said teacher Ray Cuddihy.
"We worked hard to make the series as engaging and inclusive as possible.
"The support of people like Dr Emer Ring of Mary Immaculate College in Limerick has been of vital encouragement for me.
"The children’s natural curiosity and sense of fun is really inspiring and I can’t thank them enough," he continued.
Allie, who has been playing music since she was nine, recorded two songs with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, Justin Timberlake’s 'Can’t Stop the Feeling' and Green Day’s 'Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)'.
"What a day I had performing these two incredible songs and playing with the full RTÉ Concert Orchestra behind me, it was so much fun working alongside the production team," said Allie.
