Today we all got a huge surprise when Mr. Courtney announced the Army Band were coming to play for everyone in the hall at 11am. Mr.Ivers rushed to set up the stage and by 11am we were all sitting in the hall listening to the band play tunes like SpongeBob Squarepants, One Direction and Happy. We all clapped and sang along and some 6th class pupils even showed us some dance moves. The band played Happy Birthday to Ciara, Sarah and Ren . They played a spooky Halloween song and some children were picked to wear scarey masks. Ibar then became the conductor for a little while and got to wear a khaki shirt and beret. It was a great concert and we want to thank Ms. Lisa O’ Brien who arranged the visit , her fiancee Niall and all his fellow band members who came to play today.

Despite the chilly weather, everyone had a great day today in Porterstown. Mr. Lowery said that 18 schools took part and we had lots of top placed finishers , earning points for our teams. A very special mention to Jack O’ Neill, who despite a bad fall early in his race, still managed to finish in a great time. . Well done Jack. We are looking forward now to the next event.
