Costumes for Play

December 6, 2019

Dear Parents,

As you may know, 3rd class are putting on a version of A Christmas Carol for this year's Christmas Concert. Preparations are well underway and the boys are getting excited.

I am writing to you regarding costumes. To give you an idea, this play takes place in the Victorian Era. We'll have mostly full length or three-quarter length trousers, white shirts, waistcoats, scarves, long skirts and shawls. Old or borrowed clothes are perfect. It is not necessary to purchase costumes especially for the play. If you have any concerns please get in touch.

Your son will be able to tell you the role that he is playing. Below I have listed some ideas for each role.

 

Scrooge: I believe this costume has been sorted already!

Boys/Collectors/Tiny Tim/Cockney Boy: Victorian style clothes. (e.g.trousers, shirt, waistcoat, scarf, flat cap)

Belinda/Polly/Martha: Any kind of dress and long wig if available (I know some boys in the class have these and are willing to lend)

Spirit Present: A robe of some form (dressing gown maybe!)

Ghosts: Anything that resembles a ghost!

Businessmen/Fred: Full-length trousers, jacket/waistcoat, shirt, tie, top hat, padding

 

These are suggestions only. Some boys in the class may have items you are looking for and may be willing to lend, they just need to ask in class.  All items will be kept in school and returned after the play. Please send in costumes in a labelled bag as soon as you can. I would hope to have all costumes in school by next Friday, Dec 13th.

Thanks for your support as always.

Kind regards,

Ms. Ryan

STEPS Presentation

The boys did a great job presenting their engineering projects to a local visiting engineer last Thursday. He was very impressed with the boys ideas and their prototypes. We have now submitted our projects to Engineer's Ireland. The boys put a huge effort into their projects and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting them in this endeavour.

Self Portraits

September 12, 2019

The boys learned how to draw an accurate portrait this week. We scaled out the shape of the face using guidelines and then added the features. To give the effect of looking a mirror, the boys mounted their portrait onto tin foil covered card. 

Great work boys!
