Assembly 5ES St Patrick’s Day

Class 5ES, along with the Irish Dancing club, celebrated St Patrick’s Day on Thursday 17 March with a tribute to Celtic music, dance, poetry and art. In re-telling the life of the Saint who is the patron of Ireland, the children presented blessings which they had written themselves, modeling Patrick’s own poetic words. They also performed Celtic music on the recorder and danced to traditional music, imitating the modern style of Irish dance made famous by the River Dance company.The Irish Dance club, which consists of members from Years 3 to 6, delighted the audience with an enchanting performance of intricate footwork. They were honoured to feature a veteran dance club member, Lori, from the senior school, who has helped and inspired the girls during recent weeks.
