Wood Sculpture in Belvedere


Our third class students travelled to Belvedere House and Gardens today to see a very special wood sculpture in the making. The work is being carried out by local wood carver and carpenter Mr Richie Clarke. Richie is father to Emily Rose from Mrs Connaughton's Sixth Class and Anna from Mrs Fagan's/Mrs Brennan's Second Class. Richie is currently transforming a large oak stump into King Malachy. As you can imagine the children were super excited and impressed by Richie's work and had many questions for him. He very patiently answered every question. The children would like to thank Richie for taking time away from his creation to talk to them. Don't forget to look out for the finished sculpture when you visit Belvedere over the Summer holidays.

Young Composers


Our recent snowy weather might have left some feeling 'stir crazy' but not for two young musicians in St Colman's. Leon Griffin and Karol Lachowski from Ms Murphy's Third Class began trumpet lessons with Mr Gerry Lacey back in September and they are already quite accomplished! Inspired by the snow and with time on their hands, the two boys decided to try their hand at composing. Leon composed a piece of music called 'My song' and Karol's composition is called 'Sunshine and Snow'. Mr Lacey was so impressed that he wrote out their work on music sheets and asked the boys to play their compositions in the St Colman's end of year Evening of Music! Well done Leon and Karol, we look forward to hearing your original compositions.
