MUSIC WEEK was held in the school 17th-21st June. It was a wonderful week. You can read about it HERE Mobile Music Machine visited fourth and sixth class. Renowned violinist Alan Smale and friends played for first to third class. Eimear Saunders from MUSIC GENERATION prepared all classes to sing rounds in ‘The Big Sing’. She also worked with 5th and 6th where they sing pop songs and play instruments. Joan Dempsey (also from Music Generation) worked with 2nd and 3rd class as they play recorder and percussion. We were also very lucky to have wonderful students from Artane School of Music visit us on Friday. Our students were fascinated to see children their own age playing instruments like the trumpet and clarinet. Thanks to Music Generation for all their support in this endeavour and our wonderful tutors, who have taught us so much and made learning so much fun. It looks like Music Week will be another highlight in a great school year.
Well done to Ms. Woodcock’s 3rd Class for their EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE of the the thought provoking ‘Pirates and Mermaids’. It was a play with an important message. We also enjoyed the entertaining, comical and musical ‘Murder at Magpie Manor’ from Ms. Heneghan’s 6th. Then there was the performances of ‘Mary Poppin’s’ from both 4th classes; Ms. Hughes’ and Ms. Donnelly’s which was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious; ‘practically perfect in every way’!
