The School's National Children's Choir, who performed in the National Concert Hall in 2011 were reunited to sing at the wedding of their director's daughter. Deputy Principal, Mrs Corcoran conducted the choir once more along with a few extra Scoil Ursula choristers as her daughter, Sarah, married her fiancé, Seamus, in the Cathedral on Saturday. We wish them both health & happiness into the future.
Another great performance from Ms. Crowley & Mrs. Kernan's classes as they tell the story of the birth of our Lord.
Hope you all enjoy the clips as much as we enjoyed the production!
For a number of weeks and months now members of the Music Generation Sligo team have been visiting Scoil Ursula and working with the children in music lessons. These lessons have been really fun interactive and a great learning experience for the children. The events taking place in Sligo on International Music Day 21st June involve many members of the Music Regeneration Sligo team. So maybe if you are around Johnston's Court on the day or listening to Ocean FM you'll catch some of their fantastic music!
A big thank you to all who helped bring this wonderful experience to our school over the past while!
West Midlands Theatre Group performed "The King of Copenhagen" for the Junior classes of Scoil Ursula last week. It was a very enjoyable interactive performance as you can see from the photos below.
A number of talented musicians, singers and dancers performed a concert in the Southern Hotel for a large group of elderly guests to mark European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations. The Scoil Ursula participation in this thoroughly enjoyed event was organised by School Secretary, Mary Meehan and the repertoire was co-ordinated by teacher, Mary Branley. A big thank you to everyone involved especially the performers you can see below!!
There was drumming galore today in Scoil Ursula when Peter Crann came by to facilitate a samba drumming workshop.
Children had experience of many different types of drums and were able to hear the way the drumbeat brings life to music and story.
Peter is recently back in Ireland after spending time in Senegal teaching children there about Irish music and has returned to teach Irish children the beat of African music.
