There has been a buzz in the school and music in the air over the past few weeks as Ms. Ahern prepared a number of students to sing in the Kilcoole Feis. At home the children practiced diligently with the help of their parents.
Here is what we heard today when some singers from 3rd Class came sing in Room 6. They were getting practice singing in front of an audience and the children in Room 6 were very attentive.
‘I Love My Music’ by Shankar, Shiv on Flickr
Singing ‘Can you tell me the way to somewhere’ are some past pupils of Room 6: Aoibhin, Riona and Nadine.
Jessica sang ‘Humpty Dumpty’
Finally this is Alice singing ‘Can you tell me the way to somewhere’. Alice is in 2nd Class, Room 6.
We are lucky to have Kilcoole Feis in the locality and to have this opportunity to let our light shine!
Well done to Alice, Clara, Fiona, Julia, Nicole who participated in the Kilcoole Feis.
Well done to you all for taking part and to Fiona who won a medal for 2nd place.
We are proud of you all.
Thank you to Ms Ahern who prepared Clara, Fiona, Julia and Nicole to take part
and to Hazel from ‘Action Arts’ who prepared Alice.
Thanks too to all the parents who helped.
The girls had received a Homework Pass on Monday for all their hard work.
Thanks too, to the adjudicators and the committee who run the Feis each year.
Further information about the Kilcoole Feis arrived today:
The cost is five euro per competition.
Teacher is now collecting names of children who are interested.
Each child would need to be committed to learning
and practicing their poem or song at home with their parents.
Ms Ahern will do some coaching with the children
and Teacher will go over the poems and songs with the children competing,
in front of the class to get the children used to performing with an audience.
Putting performances on a podcast may also be useful,
so that your child can listen back to themselves
and see how they might improve.
However most of the work will need to be done at home.
