Over the last two days (and nights) we have performed our Reeling in the Decades Show together with all 5th and 6th classes four times for our families and all of the other classes in the school. It was a fantastic achievement, and we raised over €1,100 for Aoibheann’s Pink Tie, a charity that supports the families of children affected by cancer.
We’ve started rehearsing for our Reeling in the Decades Concerts in December with Ms O’Sullivan’s and Ms Bridgeman’s class.
More information to follow on this.
During the year, we will be learning lots about a variety of Classical Composers and their music. You can learn lots more about them below.
We will be learning the Tin Whistle this year. You can look at some of the tunes we’ll be doing here…
Well done to the boys from our class who sang with the school choir at the Big Switch On of the Christmas lights today at the Civic Centre. It sounded fantastic!
We are working on our tin whistle playing all of the time.
All of the boys have started learning the tin whistle. 10 minutes practice each evening will greatly help their progress. Below are some of the songs that they will be learning in the coming weeks and months.
Well done to all of the boys who auditioned for the new St. Cronan’s Choir today.

Just a reminder that all boys will need to be in the Mermaid Theatre at 12.30pm on Sunday for a rehearsal with all schools prior to the two shows at 3pm and 4.30pm. The boys will be ready for collection by 5.45pm.
Looking forward to seeing you all there !

Today, Ireland’s first Eurovision winner Dana Rosemary Scallon visited all the boys making Communion and Confirmation in St. Cronan’s. She was joined by Fr Jim Kelleher from Texas and they spoke to us about the Rosary. We all got a Miraculous Medal.
Our Music Generation Concert was featured in the Wicklow Times this week!
Dana will be visiting our class on Wednesday with Fr Jim Kelleher as part of our Confirmation programme. Today we had a little look back at when she won the Eurovision for Ireland in 1970.
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.

We rehearsed with the composer Vincent Kennedy, and we had piano and percussion accompaniment.
On Sunday 22nd of March, our whole class will be performing on our Violins in

We gathered with the other 4th/5th/6th classes in the hall today for a Christmas Assembly.
We sang songs and listened to stories and poems about Christmas.
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 !
Well done to all the boys, particularly the boys from our class, who sang at the switching on of the Christmas Lights in Bray today, with Ms. Bridgeman leading the choir. They were magnificent.
