What an exciting today in Saint Brigid’s . Classes were all invited to see the cribs in the foyer but as some classes passed by, they realised there was a very important person in the Library. All the Junior and Senior Infant pupils got to go in and meet the big beardy man himself ! They even got a small present to bring home. Here are a few pics from the day.
Today we had our two youngest pupils place baby Jesus in the Crib while Ms Walker’s 3rd class sang ” Sweet Baby of Mine”
Some 5th class choir members were invited to Mount Hybla yesterday to sing carols for the residents. They sang beautifully and some pupils did some solo performances . The video below shows a few short clips . We were delighted to be able to share some of our Christmas cheer and festive spirit with the elderly members of our community. It was a very special afternoon.
Thanks to Veronica for inviting us and providing treats for our pupils to enjoy afterwards and to Mr. Harrison and Ms. Regan who practiced with the children all last week.
Last night there was great excitement when we saw some of our choir and Louis Murphy ( wasn’t he great ?) on the Toy Show. It was a late to bed night but that didn’t stop our Junior Choir who were up early to sing at the school fair today. They drew a big crowd as they sang several carols from the stage at noon today. Well done Junior Choir and Mrs. Collins.
The excitement in St. Brigids continued today at the School Fair…
Have another listen…
)We are all very proud of our Senior Choir tonight. They sang beautifully and looked like they were having great fun . Thank you all for your hard work and well done Mrs. Williams !
Did you know 1.3 million people watched the toy show last year. We are really excited about the show this Friday night. It is always a great show but this year, St, Brigid’s is represented by Louis Murphy from 6th playing guitar and Mrs. Williams and a group of children from the Senior Choir who are performing “Someone You Loved “ by Lewis Capaldi at the end of the show.
PS The entire choir will be singing carols in the Concert Hall on Sunday 8th December.
