Carlingford Spring Clean 2018

A big thank you from Carlingford Tidy Town’s Committee to all the children who took part in this year’s Carlingford Spring Clean 2018.

They were delighted to have so many pupils and parents of St Oliver’s at this year’s Spring Clean. It was a fabulous sunny day.  The children cleaned the children’s playground and did a mini beach clean between the Sailing Club and the ship wreck, gathering no less than 5 bags of of marine litter. 

Thank for for playing your part in keeping our local environment in Carlingford clean and tidy! Every helping hand makes a difference.

Congratulations to St Oliver’s Cór- Choir by Choice who took home 2nd prize again today in the Hymn Singing Competition. A huge achievement with stiff competition!

 

 

 Cór- Choir by Choice is about the inclusion of all those who are interested in singing & music while having fun! The children have been committed throughout the whole year and this certainly has paid off  this week not just in terms of prizes but also in terms of confidence, musicality, enjoyment and overall new experiences. Then for a quick walk around the area in Newry before a rewarding lunch!!!Yum Yum Yum!

Well Done to each and every choir member! Just look at our performance report  which sums up the effort of all concerned! We are very proud of you all!

Newry Feis Winners Choir- April 2018

 

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.
