African Drumming

Every Monday over the last four weeks each class has engaged in African Drumming workshops.

Building on knowledge and skill from last year, each class have been introduced to basic rhythmic concepts of West African and world percussion through drumming, chanting, body percussion, call and response and storytelling.

Using the West African Djembe (pronounced djem – bay) students assemble in the drum circle.  They connect to rhythm and sound using a variety of percussion instruments, bells and shakers. It really is great fun!!

Everybody looks forward to drumming time each Monday. 🥁😀 We have two drumming sessions left this term.

Many thanks to Pat for the fun drumming lessons 👏

Halloween Parade 2022

What a day!! 

Our annual Halloween Parade took place today around our school track and it was fantastic entertainment. There was an abundance of creativity, color, and fun on display. 

The standard was extremely high this year and the judges had a tough job on their hands to pick award winners.

Huge credit must go to all who helped create such magnificent costumes (and some terrifying ones too). Well done everybody!

We encouraged the use of recycled costumes this year as part of our Green Schools initiative. 

As well as this, our active school committee placed exercise stations around our track which added to the fun.

We hope all pupils, parents, and staff enjoy a well-earned rest during the midterm break.

Happy Halloweensmile
