We continue to provide a very comprehensive music programme for all the children in the school. Ms. Berni Gunning is the Music Co-ordinator and is ably assisted by Ms. Miriam Marron.

Our Music library is fully stocked with an excellent percussion section and a very large variety of books and CDs. Each child from 2nd to 6th Class learns to play the recorder.

Ms. Gunning and Ms. Marron take the school choir which will sing at all major school events including First Holy Communion and Confirmation. Our annual Christmas Carol Service takes place in December in St. Pius X Church and, as always, parents are very welcome.
