Music and the Arts

End of year ukulele concert!

WOW! What a treat we had today! Ms. Ní Shúilleabháin’s 3rd and 4th class performed a medley of their ukulele songs learned over the year with Diarmuid Comerford of Music Generation. We had violins, electric bass, percussion (from Diarmuid’s brother Michael) and guitar also! We had strumming, plucking, singing and percussion from the class. I am so proud of how well the Music Generation programme is embedding in our school and look forward to promoting ith further in the future. We definitely have musicians in our community. Each child looked so happy while playing – this makes it all worthwhile! Click the links below to view!

Huge thanks to Ms. Ní Shúilleabháin for her encouragement, enthusiasm and passion for music and to Fiona for supporting all the children along the way

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!

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!
