House Music - June 2018

We had a very successful House Music competition in June 2018. Many acts performed to represent their House and voting for favourite acts took place online! Pictured below are our winners (the most votes!) from each House! The overall winning house this year was CARRICK. Rebecca will collect the cup on Prize Day on behalf of Carrick. Well done to all who took part and made this a huge success!
