For the past two years the pupils of St. Aidan’s have staged a school musical in Jobstown Community Centre. Last year’s show was “Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies” – a toe-tickling tale of tights, fights and footlights! Over 60 pupils took to the stage for three performances, giving their audiences a real treat with their fantastic singing, acting and dancing.
Pupils with particular singing ability have also had the opportunity to compete in singing competitions at the AIMS Choral Festival in New Ross, Co. Wexford. Last year St. Aidan’s pupils achieved exceptionally high marks from the judges and even took home a 3rd place prize!
Fourth classes will be receiving violin lessons this year as part of the Music Generation Programme. The same year group had lessons last year and it was a great success. Their professional tutor will be Matt Rafter, who also conducts the Trinity College Orchestra. We look forward to a music-filled year.
