Christmas Variety Performance

We had a highly entertaining afternoon watching the Christmas Variety Show. The children sang a medley of Christmas songs and performed Christmas tunes. The younger children enjoyed singing “Has anyone seen Santa  and the older children performed “Christmas Chaos” a play they had written themselves.





We had a great time at the pantomime Aladdin in The Cork Opera House. This years show involved fantastic set design, wonderful costumes and a live band. The cast of characters – Aladdin, Princess Jasmine, Wishee Washee, Abanazar, The Genie, and of course the grand dame Nanny Nellie enthralled the children. Pantomime is all about audience participation and the children really enjoyed singing along with hits both old and new as well as the usual pantomime catch phrases.


We are really looking forward to our visit to Aladdin in Cork Opera House. This pantomime is jam packed with magnificent scenery, live music, dance moves, comedy skits and special effects. The bus will leave at 9.10 a.m. sharp on Thursday – Oooh yes it will!

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs



All classes had a marvellous day in the Cork Opera House to see  Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It was jam packed with magnificent scenery, costumes, live music, spectacular dance routines, comedy capers and the magical special effects we’ve come to know and love!

We enjoyed seeing seven friendly and funny dwarfs, a magical mirror, a handsome Prince, a beautiful Princess, hilarious comedy capers from Nanny Nellie and Muddles and plenty of audience participation.
