On 8th December St Aidan’s N.S. Choir ( pupils from 3rd-6th Classes) visited the local bank and Credit Union where they sang carols and Christmas songs under the direction of Ms. Lee .


All classes were very busy preparing for our Christmas concerts on Wed 16th and Thurs 17th Dec. We all enjoyed singing along to Jingle Bells at the Junior Infants’ dress rehearsal!

On Tuesday 22nd Dec the whole school community assembled in the school hall for  a short prayer service during which we listened to the Christmas story and reflected on the true meaning of Christmas. The school Choir under the direction of Ms. Lee sang some carols. The prayer service concluded with two  children from 2nd Class placing Baby Jesus in the manger.

December has indeed been a very busy month!
