Under the inspirational direction of Mairéad Deiseach, 5th and 6th Class pupils joined their classmates from St Laurence's NS for a full-day rehearsal at our school on 14th November. The rehearsal was organised by Catherine Coveney, Principal at St Laurence's NS who is the local coordinator for this wonderful choir. The children rehearsed their fabulous repertoire, which they have been working very hard on under the guidance of their Class Teachers (Ms Webb, Ms Regan and Ms Telli). Everyone was delighted by with the quality of the beautiful singing. As the senior pupils work away on their programme, we look forward to hosting another rehearsal at St Patrick's NS in the New Year.
This school-based choral experience for primary school children provides opportunities for pupils from senior classes to learn a common repertoire of songs that meet curriculum objectives. The children join with other local schools for rehearsals, leading up to a regional concert in Spring 2017. A small representative group from each school will performs in the National Concert Hall during Term 3.
