Music Strands:

Music plays a big part in our school activities. All pupils from 2nd to 6th are taught how to play the instrument tin whistle. Children play and sing during our school masses and those who are interested form a choir for the ceremonies of First Penance, First Holy Communion and Confirmation.

The visiting teacher’s come to the school weekly, Mrs. Cotter is our music teacher. Tin whistle classes for 2nd-6th classes are weekly. We also have Lily Leahy who teaches our choir.

Voice of Ireland Star Shannon Murphy:

Baltydaniel N.S. was delighted to welcome Shannon Murphy, one of the finalists on RTE programme “The Voice of Ireland” on Thursday the 20th of March.  Shannon came equipped with her guitar and entertained all the school with her beautiful voice for almost an hour.  She even sang a duet with her Mom who sounded equally as enchanting as Shannon. Rachael Kelleher, 5th class also got a chance to show off her talents and got to play Shannon’s guitar and sing along with her.

We wish Shannon all the best in the coming weeks in the competition and will be voting for her all the way through.
