We had a fantastic evening on Sunday at the Peace Proms.  The boys & girls from 4th, 5th & 6th class were absolutely brilliant on the evening & during all the rehearsals, learning lots of songs, dances and even some sign language. The enthusiasm and dedication over the past few months, and particularly on Sunday night was fantastic to see, and it was a hugely memorable evening for us all.

Peace Proms 2023

This year we are taking part in Peace Proms. Peace Proms gives primary school children the opportunity to sing with a choir of up to 3,500 children, perform with a full symphony youth orchestra, the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland, work with leading professional conductors, perform at premier music venues, develop vocal technique, presentation and performance and experience a variety of musical styles and genres. Peace Proms makes the Arts accessible to communities across Ireland and Northern Ireland, regardless of their socio-economic or cultural background. Our choir will be joining with other schools from around the country to perform in the RDS on Sunday 5th February 2023 at 7pm.

Our Student Council visited Leinster House on Wednesday the 12th of October to see the Dáil & Seanad in session. We had an opportunity to meet some serving TDs.
