Cumman na mBunscoil
In the first term of the school year (Sept-Oct 2022) the children in 5th and 6th class took part in the Cumman na mBunscoil competition. The boys and girls performed really well in the competition. They developed their football skills and showed such great teamwork. The children got all the way to the final but unfortunately we didn't win. However, that shouldn't take away from the great achievement, hard work and dedication to the game.
Congrats to the children and a big thank you to Ms. Flynn for training and guiding the children.
Christmas Show 2022
Christmas Show 2022
Last night the boys and girls gave excellent performances at the Christmas Show. The children have spent the last few weeks practising their lines, singing the songs and learning the actions. Thy put in so much hard work and it really showed last night. We are so proud of each and every one of them.
The boys and girls in the Junior Room performed "Snowman at Sunset" and the children in the middle and senior rooms performed "Hosanna Rock!". And for the grand finale all the children gathered on stage for some performances on the tin-whistles and the boomwhackers and a few final Christmas songs to get us all in the Christmas Spirit! The children hit their marks, sung beautifully and they really enjoyed themselves!
And a special thank you to Ms. Killeen for all the hard work she put in with the children and to Joe for setting up the sound system and to the hall committee for the use of the hall. Without their support we wouldn't be able to put on this wonderful show! And a special thank you and well done to the staff who encouraged the children to give it their all and their continued guidance - the show wouldn't be possible without them.
