Music and the Arts

Sustainable Christmas Decoration Competition!

Each year we challenge our pupils to design a Christmas decoration from recycled materials. We are a no-glitter school so you won’t see that in our decorations. Each year I am amazed by the standard of creativity! I will post pictures over the next week – enjoy!

December Artwork

Here are some photos to show you the festivities and art in school this month.
We have snow globes and Christmas trees from Ms. McDevitt/ Ms. D’Arcy’s class and winter silhouettes from Ms. Ní Shúilleabháin’s and Mr. Breen’s classes

November Artwork

Some stunning modern art representations from 1st,2nd, 3rd and 4th classes!

Mr. Byrne helped the children to recreate The Scream by Edvard Munch – fantastic!

Some beautiful artwork by Ms. Walker’s class including a seas scene, plátaí bia and blow painting!

We love this haunting artwork by 1st/2nd class! Such beautiful tones and blending of colour!

MUSIC GENERATION IS BACK!!

We are beyond thrilled to welcome Diarmuid Comerford back to teach ukulele to 3rd/4th class! It is wonderful to hear music being made once again!

It is our hope that instrumentation will embed in 3rd/4th class so that all children will have learned how to play at least one instrument before they leave primary school.

October Art – autumnal and Hallowe’en creativity

September Art – welcome back!
