4th Class Scoil Ursula pupil, Aoibhe Logan, has done it again. Three years after she wowed YouTube viewers with her version of Adele's 'Someone Like You', she has hit the headlines again. This time her performance of Taylor Swift's 'Blank Space' was picked up by the Evoke.ie website who described her as 'Ireland's Taylor Swift'. Check out the link below.
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 :-)
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.
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.
On our last day at school before the Chrismas holidays we had a wonderful Christmas Assembly. We had some very special guests at our Assembly; members of the Board of Management: Canon Tom Hever, John Mc Nabola and our Chairperson Marian Moore.
There was plenty of stories, prayer, song and live music! We've got some clips of the fantastic singing and music with thanks to everyone who took part and especially to Ms. Branley for organising our talented music group and practicing the songs with all of the classes.
Everyone here in Scoil Ursula would like to wish you and yours a Happy, Holy and Peaceful Christmas full of joy and laughter and the very best wishes for the New Year.
See you all in 2013!

There will be a 1 hour rehearsal in the cookery room at 6.15pm on Thursday 13th - we would ask that all parents collect their children on both days and that permission slips would be completed and returned on Thursday 13th at the rehearsal.
