The Jungle Story Success!

Back in September 2018, when Mrs Garvey was approached by Seán Lynch from Mullingar Arts Centre asking to work with our fifth class students, never in her wildest dreams did she envision the magnificient performances she witnessed last week.

Both performances were packed to the rafters and received rapturous applause and cheers from an excited and satisfied audience. The sets and costumes were worthy of a professional group of actors and who knew we had such a talented group of actors and singers in our fifth classes. For many of them I'm sure this will not be the last time we see them treading the boards. Rather this is just the beginning of their acting career. Our third class students made up a choir, who complemented the action on stage. They sang their hearts out and sounded wonderful.

All in all, these two shows were resounding successes for all concerned. Huge congratulations to Sean, Clare and the whole Arts Centre team, our third class students, Ms Scally, Mr Beehan and most especially to the amazing actors and singers from our fifth classes.

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!

As you can see from the photo below, the girls were all successful and returned home with medals galore and three also receiving trophies. Well done to you all.

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'!
