Tickets for the Mermaid Concert

Having spoken with the Mermaid Theatre, they feel that it is best for parents to purchase tickets directly from them, either by dropping into the Mermaid, or purchasing them online by clicking below;

There will be two concerts on the day, at 3.00pm and at 4.30pm,

and tickets are priced very reasonably at €12 for a family of 4 people.

Music Generation Orchestra Rehearsal 1

Today we had the first of our rehearsals for our Music Generation Concert in the Mermaid on Sunday 22nd March. We were joined by 3 other schools Lacken N.S., St. Laurence’s in Greystones and St. Kevin’s in Glendalough. We rehearsed with the composer Vincent Kennedy, and we had piano and percussion accompaniment.

Carol Singing for Kenya

All of the boys from our class together with all the 4th, 5th and 6th classes sang so well on the Main Street today. We received donations of €362.78 for a school in the little village of Matisi, Kenya.

This will make a huge difference to them. Thanks to all the parents who came down to support us !
