Our annual Christmas concert took place on Thursday 14th & Friday 15th of December to very supportive audiences. Each year much preparation and rehearsing takes place in each classroom in the lead up to the performances. Some pupils were taking to the stage for the first time and were understandably a little bit nervous but when they saw many familiar faces in the audience once the curtains were pulled, they rose to the occassion. All pupils gave great performances on stage with lovely singing also. Organising costumes takes time and pupils love dressing up in them for rehearsals which is all part of the fun, organising props, lossing props and finding them again just in time!
Thank you to parents & grandparents who helped with repairs to costumes, sourcing costumes and props. Our Parents Associaiton were very active in prepartions for the performances and ensured all ran smoothly with admission to the performances, organising a raffle and providing refreshments etc. There were many, many generous sport prizes donated for the raffle which was held on Thursday & Friday. We are very grateful for all the generous donations. Pupils from 4th & 5th classes palyed a selcetion of tunes on tinwhistle between plays which included Grá Mo Chroí, Terry Tehan’s Polka, Dirty Old Town, Galway Bay & Luch Fahr’s Barndnace. The following plays were perfomed by each classroom:
- Junior & Senior Infants perfomred Toby’s Christmas Drum
- 1st & 2nd Classes performed A ChristmasCarol
- 3rd & 4th Classes performed A Midwife Crisis
- 5th & 6th Classes performed The Magical Christmas Jigsaw
