The Retirement Concert

on June 30, 2015

The retirement concert was for our vice principal Mrs Murphy and one of our teachers Mrs Ennis. It was a surprise so every class learnt a song to sing at the concert. Junior and Senior Infants sang So Long Farewell from the Sound Of Music. First Class sang You Got A Friend in Me. Second Class sang Thank You For The Music. Third Class sang You Can Count On Me. Fourth Class sang These Are The Days and Lean On Me. Fifth Class sang Happy and Time of our Life and Sixth Class sang┬áBest Day of Our Lives. The school band and choir also sang It’s Time by Imagine Dragons. Some students also read a retirement poem and brought up roses for Mrs. Murphy and Mrs. Ennis. They were presented with bouquets after Mr. Lanigan made a speech. Then the whole school sang Favourite Things with the words changed to suit Mrs. Murphy and Mrs. Ennis. It was great to have the whole school together and the weather was beautiful. We will really miss Mrs. Murphy and Mrs. Ennis and we hope they will call in to see us some time.
