Here in Holy Rosary we have a fantastic children’s choir. The staff have also been known to sing a song or two so we want to get the parents in on the action! So we are starting a new choir for all parents, past parents, guardians, grandparents and anyone who would be interested in joining us. We will meet on Friday mornings at 9.30-10.30am in the Parents’  Room. The best part about being in a choir is you don’t have to be able to sing you just need to enjoy singing! There is safety in numbers so come along and give it a go.

Choir will begin this Friday November 9th at 9.30am in the Parents’ Room. 

For any further information please don’t hesitate to contact Jessica Carthy on 0860276666.

We are now a Digital School of Distinction!

School Summer Concert

A huge well done to everybody involved in the Summer Concert on Thursday night showcasing some of the music that takes place in our school. We are very lucky in Holy Rosary to have various music programmes running which help develop the children’s talents in choral singing, percussion, drumming, recorder and dancing. The teachers work in partnership with professional music tutors from Music Generation which is co-funded by U2, The Ireland Funds, Local Music Education Partnerships and the Department of Education. We also wanted to showcase the work of the teachers who develop the children’s musical abilities through use of the recorder, percussion and choral singing. A huge thank you to everyone who came along and supported the children. A great night was had by all. 

Free Talk on How to Build Self Esteem in Children and Teens

Good Self Esteem is important for children and teens. It gives them the building blocks to be happy, confident and helps them to deal with lots of things that life will throw at them along the way.

Suzanne Lindsay from Foróige is running this workshop for parents and care givers of 5 – 17 year olds. It starts with how you can tell if your child has good or low self-esteem and then follows with lots of practical things parents can do which really do work in building their children’s self-esteem for life.

The workshop is free of charge. It will be held in The Parents’ Room in Holy Rosary School from 9.30 – 11.30am (with tea, coffee and biscuits provided) on Wednesday 6th June 2018. 

If evenings suit better, Suzanne is running the same workshop in Tallaght (Venue to be Confirmed) on Tuesday 19th June from 6.30 – 8.15pm. You can contact her at suzanne.lindsay@foroige.ie or 0867969726  to book a place

Quick Survey on Courses for Parents

Dear parents,

I would like to run a fitness activity for parents in the Parents’ Room such as Yoga or Zumba. I would also like to organise a speaker to come and give a talk on a topic that is of interest to you.

I have created a really quick survey with 5 questions to find out that activities or topics interest you most. If you have 2 minutes to take the survey I would really appreciate it and I welcome any and all suggestions.

Thanks a million.

Jessica Carthy, HSCL

Take the survey!
