Well done to our youngest stars of stage, the Junior Infant classes who performed a beautiful uplifting nativity play this morning called "Woops a Daisy Angel". A big thank you to their wonderful teachers, Ms Cogan, Ms Dwyer & Mrs Corcoran who produced and directed this marvellous performance. We also thank our Student Council for their ushering and fund-raising all this week at all our shows. Thanks to them and the generosity of our parents & staff, we raised €750 for the Marcus Moore Trust for Cancer Research and Sligo Social Services. We are grateful to our Chairperson, Marian Moore, (Marcus' mum) and Lisa (his sister) who provided us with spot prizes for our after-show raffles in aid of these worthy causes. Well done to everybody!!! See some pics below and a video snippet. More pics of the other shows to follow :-)
Mr. Mitchell, Ailbhe Foley, Conor Bastible and Ailbhe Morgan made their way out to Ocean FM Studios in Collooney Sligo today to be interviewed by Francie Boylan live on the radio. They were there to promote their amazing pantomime "Cinderella and Rockerfella" which is on for its final night tonight at 7pm in Scoil Ursula Hall. You can hear the interview by pressing the play button below this post.
It has been a huge success so far and was a sell out show last night so be sure to come early to get a good seat and sit back for a great nights entertainment!
Well done to all of the boys and girls involved in this wonderful production and a special congratulations to Conor, Ailbhe M and Ailbhe F on their interview!
It is with great excitement that Scoil Ursula will present their first panto-style musical Cinderella and Rockerfella.
This production will provide audiences with all the essential pantomime ingredients of Ugly Sister dames, a rag-to-riches heroine, a dashing prince and a dust-sprinkling fairy godmother. This show with will have the audiences humming tunes all the way home, with a few ‘hisses’, ‘boos’ and ‘it’s behind you’s to boot!
This fantastic summer special will take place next week on the 11th, 12th and 13th of June at 7 pm in the Scoil Ursula Halla. Tickets will be sold on the door at just 3 euro for adults and 1 euro for children. This production is in aid of Cystic Fibrosis. The children on Scoil Ursula can also buy tickets in school each day.
A very special charity close to the heart of Scoil Ursula, as our very own teacher Ms. Caffrey, whose brave cousin Tríona Priestley has been battling this disease for the last 14 years.

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 great success for many pupils of Scoil Ursula in Feis Shligigh this year with many of the competitors working very hard outside school and giving great performances on stage. There was however one group of actors and actresses from 5th and 6th class who worked very hard during and after school learning lines and rehearsing their drama. They are of course the cast from "If you go down to the Woods". Today they took home the D.A. Mulcahy Cup for the National Schools Drama Competition in Feis Shligigh. Over the past few months they performed the play twice in the school and were rewarded today for all their effort, achieving 95% from the adjudicator. We are all very proud of them today. A huge thank you to all the pupils, parents and staff for their help in putting this production together.
Congratulations to one and all who were involved in the Feis today you've done yourselves and your school very proud!
