jungle book image - copyWe are very excited to announce that our fifth and third classes will be performing their wonderful show 'The Jungle Story' in Mullingar Arts Centre on Thursday January 17th and Friday 18th January.

The children are hard at work rehearsing this week for what will be a hugely entertaining family event. The show will feature all the hits including 'I wan'na be like you' and 'The Bare Necessities' as we hear the story of Mowgli and his friend Bagheera on their journey through the dangerous jungle in search of the man village.

Tickets are on sale from the school office or Mullingar Arts Centre reception and are priced at €10 per adult/€6 per child.

We hope you can join us!

Ice Skating Fun


In December, the school held a Christmas raffle, with all money raised going towards the development of our new sports field. As always the children put in a huge effort and the class who collectively sold the most cards won a trip to the new ice skating rink in Mullingar Town Park. The proud winners were the boys and girls in Mr Beehan's Fifth Class. As you can see from the photos below a great time was had by all and what a wonderful way to spend the last day of school before the Christmas holidays!

The Stage Awaits....

Keira Nooney from Mrs Walters'/Mrs Slevin's Sixth Class is treading the boards in the sold out pantomime, 'Jack and the Beanstalk', in Mullingar Arts Centre. Keira is playing the part of a slave child. She is taking part in a total of six shows. It's early days but she's loving it so far. Keira loves singing and dancing and playing the piano so this pantomime is right up her street. The first of many performances I'm sure. So as all good thespians say, 'Break a leg Keira'!

A Jungle Story

 

Anybody passing the office door on a Monday or a Friday for the past couple of weeks will have heard some very familiar and uplifting songs. Our Fifth Class students are taking part in a very exciting project in association with Mullingar Arts Centre. They will be performing 'The Jungle Story' next February in the Arts Centre and rehearsals are already in full swing. This will be a full scale musical and the children are working really hard to make it a success. We can't wait to see the fruits of their labour! A huge thank you to Mullingar Arts Centre for all their support and guidance.
