Big Sing

St Patrick’s Junior and Senior School BIG Sing
May 8th 2019 @ 12pm
St Patrick’s Church

3 Songs
700 Voices
1 Community

The idea is simple, every child in St Patrick’s Early Start, Junior and Senior Schools are learning 3 songs from “The Greatest Showman”. We will all come together in St Patrick's Church on May 8th at 12pm where we will be joined by a live band of students and singers from Lé Chéile Secondary School, students from Riversdale Community College and members of Blanchardstown Brass Band band. We would really love for as many parents as possible to also join us on the day to sing with your children, in what will hopefully be an amazing performance for the whole school community.

How can you help?
Listen to the ‘youtube’ links below at home and help your child to learn the words
Sing along to the links at home with your child
Join us on May 8th and be a part of our Big Sing community

No singing experience is needed to participate, just get listening, sing along and join your child on the day!

Courses for Parents/Guardians/Granparents


Stay Safe Programme

As you are aware, as part of our Social, Personal and Health Education Programme, all the children are taught safety skills through the Stay Safe Programme. Over the coming weeks the Stay Safe Programme will be taught.
Your child will bring home some worksheets to be signed by you. I would ask you to use this as an opportunity to discuss with your child, safety issues which are important in his/her daily life.
