Seachtain na Gaeilge – Craic agus Ceol: cuid a dó!

Thar aon rud eile, cuir am ar leataobh gach lá don spraoi! We love to make time for fun each day! Seachtain na Gaeilge has provided us with a chance to experience our first live music event together in a long long time. We had a ball! Mile buíochas to our musicians and to our wonderful dancer – we were blown away with their performance.

Cover me in sunshine!

What a delightful performance by our senior infant boys. In music lesson today, they were able to memorise the words and learn how to sing Pink’s song ‘Cover me in Sunshine’. The boys sang so beautifully and with such emotion. They are a very talented group and we look forward to their next performance. Great voices, great timing and great actions – we loved it!

Córfhéile 2020

Over a hundred boys from the school wowed a huge audience last night at Córfhéile in the National Basketball Arena. Ms. Maher, Ms. Tynan and Ms. Rooney were delighted with the beautiful performances of their classes. Our special thanks to Ms. Maher who is one of the main organisers of the event which goes on all week with hundreds of schools involved. Click for more photos. Judge’s report.

Music Week

Last week we celebrated ‘All things musical’.
All of the boys had extra music classes during the week. Team teaching with the aid of Ms. Harte, Ms. Maher, Ms. Murphy and Ms O’ Donoghue enabled the boys to have plenty of fun with dance, listening and responding, composing, playing melodies with accompaniments and drumming.
We were also fortunate in securing a booking with the renowned string quartet ‘Graffiti Classics’ and the boys of Senior Infants, First, Third and Sixth learned a lot about classical music in a dynamic and highly entertaining way. Here we can see Ms. Murphy’s class enjoying musical storytime and Ms. Maher’s on percussion.
