The National Children’s Choir* has been a great opportunity for children in 5th and 6th Class. Helping the many children recognise the beauty of singing and choral music. We worked very hard, learning and practicing for six months to prepare 15 lovely songs for our performance in the National Basketball Arena. Anna and Gráinne, our two wonderful choir teachers, also worked exceptionally hard, teaching us our songs as well as learning and performing even more songs for their own choir. Very soon a selection of 5th and 6th Class children will take part in a concert in the National Concert Hall in Dublin City Centre. Caoilfhionn and Nadeen
