On Thursday April 6th, the school band of 35 musicians from Ennis National School visited our school, accompanied by their teachers. All 30 of our band members were waiting in anticipation in the school halla. When they arrived, we played music together for an hour. It was an uplifting experience for all involved, and our lovely, sweet music rang out throughout the entire school, inside and out. Many thanks to all the children involved, and to Miss Tuohy, Charoltte and Eileen for all their help in organising the event. Our next big performance will be at the two First Holy Communion masses on May 6th.
