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.

Extra Special Choose Time

 

Mrs Healy Donoghue's Third Class received a very special delivery today during second break. As the first class to completely fill their target chart, they were rewarded with a 'choose time' with a difference. A special delivery of freshly cooked pizzas made its way to their class and was shared out among the boys and girls. Mrs Healy Donoghue is very proud of the children and hopes they keep up the hard work.

Christmas Tales

This morning, Kevin Kelly from Ms Skelly's Fourth Class, treated everyone to a Christmas tale, which he read over the intercom. Kevin wrote the story himself. It was about a young girl who woke up in the night and found a stranger in her sitting room. She returned to her bed and fell back asleep. When she woke in the morning, she found lots of presents in her sitting room and quickly realised that the stranger must have been Santa!

Seoidín wrote about a young girl who found a mysterious box in her house at Christmas. She tried to find out who owned the box and failed. Curiosity got the better of her and she peeped inside the box. To her surprise she found a kitten looking back at her. When she checked with her grandmother, she was delighted to find that the kitten was her new pet!



Well done and thank you to Kevin and Seoidín for sharing your festive tales with us.
