Christmas was celebrated in our school this year with a Carol Concert in St Mary's Church, Knockraha.
The whole school community came together with the parents and families of the children to celebrate the nativity story through singing, music and drama.
Our wonderful singers backed by musicians Ms Hennessy, Ms Mulcahy and Adam Mulcahy.
Our singers were also assisted by the recorder players of 5th and 6th class.
Of course we can't forget our fantastic narrators who told the story to our whole congregation.

While the older classes enjoyed a Tráth na gCeist the younger classes took part in some traditional dancing. There was even a dreoilín from 2nd and 3rd Class.We finished off the week with an assembly in which the whole school came together to perform An Haka Gaelach. We were also treated to a lovely rendition of Ámhrán na bhFiann from Mrs Ryan’s class.
The whole school showed their performance skills at our annual Christmas Concert on Thursday the 22nd of December. Beautiful singing, stunning recorder playing, a nativity and a very entertaining "Elf Factor" ensured a great show!
