We had a wonderful celebration of creativity in our school during Creative Schools Week. We all got to take part in fun drumming workshops with the fantastic Drumadore drumming company, and we also had a visit from Mr. Whippie! It was a lovely treat at the end of Creative Schools Week - well done to all of the children and teachers for the wonderful creative work and activities, we all enjoyed it!
In Second class we are enjoying getting creative with some Music for Creative Schools week!
We have learned how to play 'The Galway Shawl' on tin whistle. I'm sure you'll agree we're very talented!!
We started learning tin whistle in September for the first time. Here we are playing 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star'. I'm sure you'll agree we have learned fast and play really well.
Look who dropped in to accompany and inspire our current musicians! It was lovely to see some familiar faces and hear their amazing music . Well done to all involved and keep on playing!
Seachtain na Gaeilge atá ann! Tugann Seachtain na Gaeilge deis ar leith do dhaoine óga Gaeilge a labhairt agus a úsáid chomh maith le cúpla focal nua a fhoghlaim.
Today as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge, we had our Maidin Gaeilge. All of our classes did a little performance in the Hall. Junior Infants – 2nd Class were in the hall between 9.30am and 10.40am singing Irish songs and playing tunes on their tin whistles. 3rd – 6th Classes were performing between 11.15am and 12.45pm and performed mini dramas, Irish songs and poetry.
Our 5th and 6th classes and after school choir really enjoyed singing with over 300 other primary school students last Saturday with the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland.
We have been very busy practising for our Christmas play Whoops A Daisy Angel. We are very good at saying our lines and singing our songs. We putting our play on this Friday (December 13th) in our school hall. Here are photos of us in our lovely costumes.
Our 5th and 6th classes will be taking part in the Peace Proms concert in the new year with lots of other schools from around Galway. We will be starting to practice the songs very shortly and are really looking forward to the concert. You can find out more information about the Cross Border Orchestra Ireland Peace Proms by visiting their website. Tickets for the concert can be purchased through the website too. In the meantime take a look at a video of a workshop which took place last year in the build up to the concert.
