December 2017

Christmas 2017

Christmas 2017 was wonderful. We were very busy with Christmas shows, art, music and a trip to see The Sound of music.

Junior Infants Play : Whoops -a-Daisy Angel

Junior Infants from Rooms 1, 2 and 4 performed their show Whoops -a -Daisy Angel for the school on Wednesday December 13th, and for their parents on Thursday December 14th. W-A-D was a very clumsy, forgetful angel, until she got a very special job. She told everyone the Good News about the Baby Jesus.

Junior Infants welcome us to their show.
W-A-D counted the beautiful snowflakes. Did she get it right?

Oh look the baby has arrived!
Kings and Shepherds come to see the Baby Jesus. W-A-D got it right, this time!
Everybody welcomes the Baby Jesus.
Wow, look who came to the stable after getting stuck in the chimney! Santa!!! Amazing!
Some stars of the show from Room 4.

It was an absolutely brilliant show!  Thank you parents for the great costumes. A big thank you to all the boys and girls who were in the show, to the Junior Infant teachers, to the  other teachers involved, and to all the senior girls who helped to ensure we all enjoyed Whoops -a Daisy Angel. It was worth all the hard work! Everybody in the Pres and the  Junior Infant parents and families really enjoyed the show.

A Midwife Crisis

The boys and girls in Rooms 3, 5 , 9 and 17 put on an amazing show for the school on Monday December 18th. The midwife was in crisis because she was looking for the “Palace” in Bethlehem, where a King was to be born. She looked for directions from locals, census takers, kings and shepherds.

The Midwife and her Donkey tell us about their “crisis”.
There’s great singing and dancing along the way.
The Kings don’t know where she can find the palace.
Maybe there is no palace for this king. There is no room at ANY inn! Where could he be? lets sing and see.
Never mind Sat-Nav, the Stars have shown the way!
The Baby Jesus has been found. The King was born in a stable! The “crisis” is over, the King has been found. Joy to the world.
Some of the cast of the show. Well done!

A Midwife Crisis is a great Christmas show. We were privileged to enjoy its premier in the school. Everybody worked really hard to put on such a great performance. The singing, dancing and poems were great. Thanks very much to the parents for the costumes, to the boys and girls for their performances, and to the teachers, from Rooms 3, 5, 9 and 17,  and to their helpers, for all their hard work. Míle buiochas, díbh go léir.

A Miracle in Town

We were all in for another treat when Senior Infants put on their show, A Miracle in Town.

We were told the wonderful story of The First Christmas in song.
Mary and Joseph made the long journey to Bethlehem to be counted.
There was no room for them in any inn, so they had to go to a stable. The stable was really “a cosy pad”, where Jesus was born.
The kings and shepherds came with gifts.
The camels and servants had very important jobs too. Nobody told Jealous Herod where the New King lay. They kept him safe.
 It was a Miracle. A new king was born to save the world. ! Everybody was full of joy and wonder and sang A Miracle in Town.
Some of the stars of the show from Room 7

A Miracle in Town was a wonderful show. Everybody sang, danced and said their very important lines very well. Thank you very much to the boys and girls who took part, and to their parents for the costumes, and helping them with their lines. Míle buiochas to their class teachers, other teachers and helpers involved. All that work made it possible that the school and Senior Infant families enjoyed a great show.

The boys and girls in Room 8 could hardly believe their eyes!
