Pupils learn the tinwhistle in school. Recently with our new makey makey, we learned how to play a Banana piano too!!!
There are after school music lessons every Tuesday.
Junior and Senior Infants go from 2.00-2.30 and senior pupils go from 2.40-3.30. Lessons are €5 and all are welcome.
Irish Dancing takes place in the school once a week – Catherine Coleman comes to the school at a cost of €3 per pupil. Pupils perform in Scór every year and for the parents at Christmas and at the end of the year. Pupils also take part in the Catherine Coleman school class feis in Claremorris every year and some of the pupils take Irish dancing exams.
Mrs Mangans class took part in Scór 2015. For the Instrumental section They played learning Inis Oir and The Kerry Polka. They also competed in the Group Singing where they sang Molly Malone and The Star of the County Down. Padraic took part in the Recitation and he did an amazing job, he can’t have been more than a mark behind the winner! Sadly Nora was sick and she couldnt compete in the Solo Singing but we look forward to seeing her on stage next year!!!
