Peace Proms

Rooms 23 and 24 are taking part in the Peace Proms this Saturday. Peace Proms is a music education resource for Primary Schools and it culminates in a large scale performance for choirs and orchestras at iconic venues throughout Ireland and the UK. Over 30,000 children from over 500 schools take part each year. They sing in choirs made up of almost 4000 children and are accompanied by a full youth symphony orchestra. A host of stellar soloists, dancers and Drum and Pipe Corps also perform.

Our pupils have been practicing the songs since September but now the day has finally arrived! On Saturday next they will travel by bus to the RDS . We hope they have a wonderful evening and we know they will represent our school with pride.

Tickets for the performance are now completely sold out.

The children will meet in the Church carpark on Saturday 2nd February at 4:30 pm

Art Winners in 4th Class

Exciting news from Ms Murray’s class today…. Some time ago the children in her class entered an Art Competition. Their task was to design a cover for the School Kit Catalogue. This catalogue is distributed to all the schools in Ireland.

Eleanor was the winner and her prize was a beautiful Art Kit. All theother pupils in the class got a huge surprise when Emma Lynch from School Kit gave a pack of twistables to each of them. We look forward to seeing the new catalogue cover soon. Congratulations to Eleanor and thank you to Emma and School Kit.
