It’s Arts Week

Our annual Arts Week takes place next week ( November 24th-28th). The aim of this week is to immerse the children in experiences of Visual Art, Drama, Music and Literature through exposure and participation in a specially designed, intense, stimulating and focused arts experience. Throughout the week children will learn across a range of lessons, workshops, fieldtrips, theatre- and gallery-visits conducted by our own teachers and wide range of expert specialists brought in especially for the week at considerable expense. Here’s some of the highlights of the week:

  • The excellent Little Music Makers music composition workshops for infant classes
  • Mobile Music School Singing workshops for the middle class-bands
  • Theatre Lovett from the Ark Theatre in our school for a day of workshops with the 4th classes
  • A visit by the Junior Classes to the Ark Theatre for the production A Most Peculiar Wintry Thing
  • AfroEire , workshops for the middle class-bands on a fusion of African and Irish culture, drumming and dance
  • Traditional Irish Fiddle performance by Liam O Connor
  • An Acting workshop for senior classes by star of the Abbey Theatre Don Wycherley ( and, yes he was in Fr Ted too! )
  • The Mobile Music School Percussion doing percussion composition workshops with the senior classes.
  • Boom Whackers percussion composition workshops
  • Ready FireAim! Theatre company with performance and workshop based on poetry of Roald Dahl.
  • Lessons from the national Curriculum in Looking and Responding to Art across all classes
  • Drama lessons in all classes on story, myth, legend
  • Visual art lessons in many classes on fabric and texture
  • Some classes beginning to put-together their song/drama for the Winter Concerts
  • Those classing involved in the twinning project with a Cambodia school will be taking a detailed look at the Art and Culture of Cambodia
  • And much much more…………… many thanks to the Parent Association who through their hard-work and voluntarism doing bag-packing, organising craft-fairs and beauty-nights etc are able to subsidise these wonderful events for ALL OF THE CHILDREN in the school
