St Patrick's Day Celebrations

Print PDF

St Patrick's Day was celebrated in style today with a full day of singing, dancing, poetry and artwork.  It began with the P6 class performing their assembly on the theme of St Patrick and perserverence.  Congratulations Primary 6 on your presentation, it was of the highest standard.  The day then continues with each class providing a little performance for the rest of the school.

After break we were joined by some past pupils of our school who provided a spectular display of Irish dancing.  Everyone was so impressed!

The morning finished off with a giant Waves of Torey with teachers and children dancing together to the wonderful music.

In the afternoon, the children were treated to more music, this time from a group made up of teachers and pupils.  Everyone enjoyed the nice, relaxed atmosphere and joined in with the songs.  Thank you to Miss Delaney for her hard work in preparing ofr the day and for Mr Caughey's support on the guitar. Congratulations to Miss Grant, Mr Coulter and Miss McPhillips who have discovered that they are talented drummers, they displayed great drumming skills throughout.

Ice cream and green jelly was on the menu for the end of the day and there were clean plates left by everyone.

SIncere thanks to the staff for their work in preparing the children for today and to Miss McEvoy for organising what has turned out to be a very successful celebration of our Irish culture.
