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.
Our Christmas play was called ‘I’m Gonna Shine’. This play was all about journeys made towards Bethlehem by various travellers in a search for true treasure, the newborn King! Gloria the brightest star of all, had a really important job to do – she needed to shine, shine, shine so that the three wise men could follow her to Bethlehem.
The angels and their heavenly choir helped the shepherds on their way. Meanwhile, a very special couple Mary & Joseph were also making the long journey to Bethlehem. This culminated in everyone gathering together in a humble stable where they all celebrated the arrival of baby Jesus.
I am very proud of all the Junior room pupils who worked hard over the last few weeks to learn off all their lines, songs and actions. The pupils and I thoroughly enjoyed making and performing this play for you. We hope you enjoyed watching it and we wish you and yours a very peaceful and happy Christmas.
Junior Infants (2019/20)
As a participating Creative School with our focus on “Music”, Junior and Senior Infants went to the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar today to see the musical show, Rockin’Rhymes. This performance is part of the RoolaBoola Festival and was presented by Branar Téatar do Pháistí. Original songs based on the well-loved nursery rhymes will be performed by a live 5-piece band, accompanied by animated illustrations by artist Maeve Clancy and directed by Marc Mac Lochlainn. The children really enjoyed this performance, joining in singing, clapping to the rhymes and wriggle dancing in their seats!
