TWO sellout shows took place at Presentation Primary School on Wednesday as pupils performed their annual Christmas concert.

Speaking to teacher Helena Hennessy before the evening performance, she said the afternoon show was a huge success thanks to the rehearsals put in over the previous two weeks by all involved.

“The excitement has been palpable for the last week as the show drew close. They look forward to it every year and they love it,” she said.

Ms Hennessy told us a few highlights of what the pupils had in store for the audience.

“The junior infants are doing a rhyme medley with a very scary spider! We have some Irish dancing followed by the senior infants with their own take on the Nativity called ‘A Journey To Bethlehem’.

The choir and some of the third class music group sing ‘Silent Night’ in Polish, Irish and English. The music group are playing a medley of songs. The senior girls choir and some members of the junior choir will sing the Beatles song ‘Golden Slumbers’.

The first class pupils are doing the The Snowman and the second class are doing songs from around the world. Their final song is ‘A Little Bit Of Peace’ which is sung in the languages of all the children in the class and all the children come back out along the side of the hall and the audience also ¬†joins in,” said Ms Hennessy.
