Final rehearsals are taking place, both performances are booked to capacity and we are all looking forward to Winterfest 2017, our whole school performance of Peter Pan. Here are some pictures from our dress rehearsal to give a flavour of what’s to come!

On Wednesday, 2nd class took a short but very enjoyable trip to Ballyroan to listen to and participate in a very interesting science talk all about energy. We learned through experiments about how energy is transferred from one thing to another with some interesting and entertaining results! Afterwards we spent some time in the library.
On Tuesday, 2nd Class attended ‘Music in the Classroom’ in the National Concert Hall. It was a fantastic experience to see the National Symphony Orchestra. The children watched ballet dancers on the stage and were delighted to see the stories, ‘Peter and the Wolf’ and ‘Beauty and the Beast’ acted out through music. They also sang a number of songs along with the orchestra. It was a great day out!
On 11th June 2013, 1st and 2nd Classes went to Sealife in Bray and then had some fun on the beach. Thanks to Cathal, Petrina and Margaret and all the helpers and parents for our great day out. Here is a little snapshot of our day out!
