Congratulations and well done to all who received their full attendance certificates from Hallowe’en to Christmas. With cold and flu season upon us this was a difficult task indeed!
This year’s Christmas Concert was a wonderful spectacle of festive fun. From the smallest to the tallest every child played their part superbly. Parents, Grandparents and friends were treated to a two hour show which began with the Infants production of The Christmas Story which featured memorable songs such as Knock, Knock, A Long way to Go and we all quickly learned that when Ceasar says Go….WE GO!!
First and Second Class had a tough act to follow but they certainly got the crowd going with their Beatles Inspired Play. Santa’s elves picked the worst possible moment to go on strike but never fear just as all hope was lost the Minions and Santa’s Spy elves were on hand to save the day!
After the interval, Third and Fourth Class discovered the true meaning of to ‘Love Your Neighbour’ in their production of Straw and Order. Poor Judge Grumps had the unenviable task of putting order on the donkeys and the cows that threatened the true meaning of Christmas.
The final act of the concert was the Fifth and Sixth Class production of X-Mas Factor where God held open auditions for the parts of Mary, Joseph, the angels, the shepherds and the Wise Men. KIng Herod was none too happy when he discovered the part of the King of Kings was going to…. A BABY!
The entire cast came together at the end to sing us out with a medley of Christmas Songs such as Silent Night, Away in a Manger, and our favourite Jingle Bells.
Many thanks to the Parents Council for holding the raffle during the interval and to all who donated prizes. As always, it is greatly appreciated.
Re-live the memories of the 2016 Christmas Show as DVD’s will go on sale in January.. Please order your copies at the school in the New Year. Many Thanks to Cathríona Byrne for filming and producing the DVD’s.
A surprise visitor arrived to Kilberry N.S. for a sneak preview of our Christmas Concert..
Santa Claus received a warm welcome in all the classes and gave each child a selection box as a treat for all their hard work!
Thank you Santa……..
All classes were treated to a fun session of circus skills activities which included juggling, tight rope walking, spinning tops and a host of other wonderful and mesmerising feats. Thanks to Johnny for coming in and demonstrating his amazing talents and sharing his knowledge with the children.
Congratulations and well done to all who received their full attendance certificates and prizes for the first term!
We said a fond farewell to our 6th class on Tuesday. We wish them every success as they look forward to starting secondary school and the new chapters to come. We are extremely proud of the young people they have become and know that they will continue to do Kilberry N.S. proud.
Congratulations Class of 2016!!
Our school is proudly flying two new flags overhead as our JEP and Green flag for water were raised last Friday.
Ironically, we had plenty of ‘water’ on the day as the weather proved uncooperative but we were determined to see our flags raised and braved the rain!
Huge thanks goes to Mr. O’Sullivan and Ms. Carter, 5th and 6th class and the Water committee for all the work they put in to achieve the flags.
Thanks to everyone who made Active Week 2016 so fun and enjoyable!!
From Bouncy Castles, to circuit training….we had a ball………..!
