We enjoyed a fantastic Summer Concert last night in St. Clare’s with an eclectic mixture of song, drama and music in front of a packed audience. Second class performed and sang songs from “The Garden” while Sixth class wowed the crowd with their version of the classic Wizard of Oz. Junior Infants sang “Hello Mister Sun” and “Boa Constrictor”, Senior Infants sang “Teddy Bear Rock and Roll” and “Thanks”, First Class sang “Good Morning Sun” and Disney’s “Under the Sea”, Third Class sang “We’ve got the Whole World in our Hands” and Fourth and Fifth classes sang a medley of songs from the National Childrens Choir repertoire. Finally, the choir and orchestra finished off the night with some beautiful music. Well done to all!

Our class went to the Rathmines library to learn about renewable energy. we made houses out of Lego and put solar panels on top of them. Then we put the houses under a lamp and measured how many volts did it restore over a period of time. We had a lot of fun and learned some interesting facts.
