To complete our Christmas concert in @Garrymore the pupils sang Daidí na Nollag, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Do You Hear What I Hear?, We Wish You a Merry Christmas and Merry Christmas Everyone. The children performed so well and we are all very proud of them.
Philip yawns all day long! Why? Because he can’t resist gazing at the stars all night! The other children complain that his sleepiness ruins their games. But one night when Philip is busy stargazing he spots a moving star, and he can’t resist following it. While everyone else is asleep, Philip is busy meeting shepherds, sheep, angels and wise men – and then a baby king! It was one exciting adventure.

Djembe drums originated in Africa. They are made with a wooden shell and a head made from animal hide, usually it belongs to a goat. Lukasz came to our school to teach us about the djembe and others drums. We played the drums and sang songs. We had lots of fun. We made the video in school. Evan from fourth class is speaking as Mr. Turtle and the presenter is me, Clíona, from sixth class.
Listen to Lorna, Amy and Megan in the Junior room sing ‘A Song To Bridget.’
We made crosses from rushes in honour of St. Bridget, one of Ireland’s patron saints along with Saints Patrick and Columba.
