We are very very proud of our wonderful singers and instrumentalists- Our Cór -Choir By Choice who performed to the very very best their abilities today in Newry Feis. Congratulations to all the children involved they were amazing! Their presentation, manners and talents were all complimented. Thank you also to all the parents and staff for your continued support throughout the year!
1st Place: We came home with the cup for our Action Song Performance of : “I’m not what you say I am”
2nd Place: We got a beautiful plaque for coming second place in the Fireside Singing Competition.
Our 1st piece was called ‘Cockles and Mussels’ We choose this piece because it is very famous, it is dramatic and tells a story of an Irish woman called Molly Malone.
Our 2nd piece is a mixed version of ‘When the Saints go Marching In’ which is partnered with ‘She’ll be coming round the Mountain’. We enjoy singing partner songs and these are fireside songs anyone could sing freely in homes around a fire.
Thank you soooooooooooooo much to all in the PA who help out at the BINGO yesterday providing Tea/Coffee, ticket selling and those who called the numbers Sinead and Seamus. A special word of thanks to for Doreen for organising this wonderful fundraiser. To all our sponsors for the cash prize and spot prizes for the raffle and novelty draw!
We took advantage of the wonderful weather today by exploring the seashore habitat that we have been learning about in school. We managed to find most of the plants and animals we have been researching and even more!
How lucky are we to live and work in this picturesque village!
4th, 5th and 6th were invited by the Office of Public Work to King John’s Castle on April 10th. The purpose of the afternoon was to show the pre-works site and in particular the souterrain prior to it being backfilled.
It was a great opportunity to see a souterrain and to hear some archaeological information and its historical significance in relation to King John’s Castle.
Pupils in St. Oliver’s N.S. are hoping to achieve the Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science and Maths Award again. We are aiming for a Plaque of STEM Excellence so we completed lots of Science activities this year!
There are many steps that we have all completed with the aim of attaining this award again. What a very busy but enjoyable year of investigations and creative learning!
