Dunbrody 1916 and Famine Tour

Posted on March 3rd, 2016 in Ms. Griffin,Ms. K Shannon,Ms. McKiernan by emckiernan2159  Tagged , ,

4th, 5th and 6th Classes went on a trip to the Dunbrody Famine Ship in New Ross.  We saw a fantastic presentation about the history and events leading up the 1916 Rising.

We learned about The Famine and the awful conditions on the Famine Ships of the time, we even met some of the passengers!

We had a beautiful picnic beside the Eternal Flame and we even got to stand where JFK stood all those years ago!

Afterwards we went to visit the Ross Tapestry which is amazing.  It tells the history of Wexford and the Norman Invasion through 15 large Tapestries.  Well worth a visit:-)

Oíche Stoirmiúil

Scríobhamar an scéal seo le chéile an tseachtain seo. Is aoibheann linn a bheith ag scríobh! Tá súil againn go mbainfidh sibh taitneamh as.


Tráthnóna amháin bhí an teaghlach amuigh sa ghairdín ag garraíodóireacht agus ag súgradh. Bhí an-spraoi is sport ag na paistí.

Go tobann, thosaigh gaoth láidir ag séideadh i ngach treo. D’éirigh an spéir dorcha agus chonaic siad scamaill dubha ann. I bpreab na súil thosaigh báisteach trom ag titim.

Ar dtús, bhailigh siad na héadaí anuas ón líne éadaí ach bhí sé ró-dhéanach, bhí siad fluich báite.  Thóg siad an lomaire, an sluasaid agus an barra rotha isteach sa bhothán.

Rith gach duine isteach ar chosa in airde. Bhí siad go léir fluich go craiceann.

Ansin, las Mamaí an tine agus chuir gach duine a bpitseamaí orthu. Shuigh an chlann in aice na tine ag ól seaclaid the. Bhí siad ag féachaint ar scannán ar an teilifís.

Tar éis tamaill, theip ar an leictreachas. Thosaigh an leanbh ag caoineadh agus bhí an páiste beag ag crith le heagla. Bhí ar Dhaidí coinnle a lasadh. I gceann cúpla noiméad, fuair siad cártaí agus thosaigh siad ag imirt cluichí.

Níor stop an bháisteach ar feadh an lae. D’eirigh siad bréan de na cluichí tar éis tamaill.

Ag a naoi a chlog, chuaigh said go dtí a leapacha. Thit siad ina gcodhladh laithreach.

I lár na hoíche, dhúisigh Mamaí agus Daidí de phreab. Chuala siad fothram ard taobh amuigh. Baineadh geit uafásach astu. Léim siad as an leaba, rith said go dtí an bhfuinneog agus d’fhéach said amach.

Bhí ionadh an domhain orthu nuair a chonaic said crann ar an mbothán agus é ina smidiríní. Níor chodail Mamaí agus Daidí go dtí a sé a chlog ar maidin. Ní dhéanfaidh siad dearmad ar an oíche sin.

We have been back training since September. Training takes place at the school every Friday from 2.40 to 3.30 weather permitting. Attendance has been great and we would encourage the girls to keep it up as we get closer to the start of the Rackard League. New players, especially from fifth class are very welcome!

Our Time in the Spotlight

Posted on January 30th, 2014 in Ms. K Shannon by Ms. Shannon  Tagged

This is a collaborative piece of recount writing we did before Christmas.

On Sunday the 24th of November we had the most amazing experience at the Opera House. All during the week, schools from all over Wexford and further a field came together to participate in the eMjet production of ‘Sing Out Loud.’ There were six concerts in total. Our turn came on Sunday at 2 pm.

It all kicked off in September when Ms. Shannon delivered the exciting news of the ‘Sing Out Loud’ concert. We began to rehearse immediately. Everyone was thrilled and eager to get started. We continued to rehearse until all our songs were perfected.

The day finally arrived and we gathered at the Opera House at half past ten. Ms. Shannon and Mr. King were there to greet us. We met the other schools that were participating in the show, Oylegate, St. Mary’s, Ballyroebuck and C.B.S. Wexford. There was a nervous and exciting buzz coming from the overflowing foyer.

A short time later, our eMjet attendants, Paula and Mary, guided us into the spectacular auditorium. We were shown to our seats. After that, Tony Carty and the rest of the eMjet crew were introduced to us and we were informed of the schedule for the day ahead.

Next, we headed for the stage to rehearse with our conductor, Naoimh Penston. Before introducing us to the harmonies of certain songs, she ran through some vocal exercises and warm-ups. Then we practised most of the medleys. All of the schools sounded wonderful together (even the boys from the C.B.S.!)

After a tiring but enjoyable rehearsal, we ascended the stairs to our designated dressing room. We enjoyed our own packed lunches and they also provided juices and apples. In our dressing room, we felt like professionals. There were a variety of emotions floating around. Our voices were rested and we were ready to sing again. Then our time came and we were summonsed to the stage over the intercom.

We arrived on stage and we all hustled into our seats, trying not to make a sound. All of a sudden, the curtains rose and we heard an encouraging cheer from the audience. The band began to play and we burst into song.

In between the medleys there were surprise guest acts including; Mags and the Whiterock Girls, The Wild Turkeys accompanied by Irish dancers, The Jersey Boys, Meagan Power, the hilarious Biddy Walsh and the amazing Extreme Rhythm. These acts were inspiring because of their extraordinary talent.

We had wonderful fun with the dance moves and we sang our socks off! Everyone put in an astonishing effort and the atmosphere was electric. In the wings, as Mr. King was nodding his head and tapping his foot, Ms. Shannon was doing the complete opposite, showing off her ridiculous moves! The time flew by as we sang all of our songs and before we knew it the show was over. The audience’s reaction was priceless and made us feel like One Direction.

It was a breathtaking, once in a lifetime experience, performing on stage in Wexford Opera House. We will never forget it!

The most popular were the  professional sports person, rock star and royal family. The children were helping their teacher’s pick an option for the survey and they had fun and so did the children. Maggie and Stacy went around  the  classes.
