Today we had our Christmas concert. The whole hall was PACKED so some people had to stand, but they were still happy. Each class did a song or a poem. Lots of people wore festive hats and scarves.
Some parents had organised a Race Night that raised €3000. They presented a cheque to Mrs Clarke at the start.
Senior Infants did some poems. They had awesome actions too.
First class sang some songs.
Second and Third class sang ‘I wish it could be Christmas every day’. Everyone joined in. All the adults clapped along and everyone had a smile on their faces.
Third and Fourth class did a poem. They had nice costumes as well.
Fifth class sang the ‘Twelve days of Christmas’. They had a violin and guitar playing alongside them.
Our class did the poem ‘Twas the Night before Christmas’, by Clement Clarke Moore. We had to make sure we said our lines loud and clear. Luckily, everyone loved us and enjoyed our performance. All the classes were fantastic. We got a HUGE clap at the end.
Mrs Clarke presented a cheque to the Diabetes Association in Mrs Cullen’s memory. Last years 6th Class had collected some of their confirmation money and the staff also made donations.
A couple of us stayed behind and snow-sprayed the windows. There were really cool stencils like: a snowman, Rudolph and Santa in his sleigh.
