Newsletter 11th October 2023

Peace Proms: 4th, 5th and 6th classes have been offered the opportunity to take part in the 2024 Peace Proms. The programme includes the learning of songs and medleys in school, attendance at a regional workshop hosted by renowned conductor Greg Beardsell and performance at the Peace Proms Concert in SETU Waterford on Saturday 9th March 2024. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to nurture a love for music and the arts in our children and to sing alongside a real orchestra.   We hope to participate in Peace Proms on a cyclical basis so that each child will have this opportunity at some point in their primary school education.
