London Chamber Brass Quintet

We were all delighted to have a visit from the London Chamber Brass Quintet this week. They entertained us for over an hour with exciting music and lots of audience participation. We learned all about their instruments and even how to conduct! The musicians were very impressed when we managed to identify all of the film scores correctly!

Cór Fhéile na Scol

On Tuesday the 28th of March our school choir consisting of children from 4th, 5th and 6th classes took part in the Cór Fhéile na Scol. They performed along with seven other schools to a large audience in the City Hall. The children performed three songs from the ‘Trolls’ movie – True Colours, The Sound of Silence and Tá an Móthú seo go hÁlainn. They have been working very hard over the last few months with rehearsals at lunch time, during school and after school and it certainly paid off as their performance was outstanding! Well done to our fabulous school choir, you are a credit to the school. Also a great big thanks to Mr Kennedy, Ms Cremin and Ms. Norris for preparing them for their perfromance.

A Visit from the Army Band

Everyone in Scoil Chill Ruadháin was thrilled to be visited by the Army Band today! They played a huge range of songs from Frozen to Lady Gaga to Jingle Bells! They were even joined by two of our pupils who took up the baton as conductor for a number of songs and by Ms Roche who kindly stepped in to play the flute while the flautist was singing! There was a wonderful festive atmosphere in the halla during the concert and all of the children and teachers had great fun singing and dancing along!

 

“This is the Voice…!”

NUP_136398_0055.jpgWe had a very special visitor at school today! John Sheehy from The Voice of Ireland came to see us. John is in the semi-final of The Voice and is on Team Una. He sang three songs for us and we all joined in. John will be singing Sugar by Maroon 5 on Sunday night. We wish him the best of luck and hope that he makes it into the final!

Christmas Carol Service

To celebrate the Christmas season, all of the classes took part in a Christmas Carol Service which told the story of Christmas through carols, old and new. The children put a lot of time and hard work into rehearsing for the show and put on a beautiful performance. Well done everyone!
