St Francis of Assisi PS, Balgriffin, Dublin 13


We have a very active choir in St Francis of Assisi. Every child is welcome to join the choir from 3rd class. We practice once a week in the hall together learning new songs and polishing our old songs. 

We are always very in demand at Christmas time and we sing in local nursing homes and for the School Sing Along on the last day. Over the years at Christmas we have also sung in Dublin Airport, Donaghmede Shopping Centre and raising money for charity in the local bank.  

In the new year, 3rd class takes part in the Laudate Festival as part of Catholic Schools' Week. For this event we learn lots of new songs and perform them at a concert in a big church on Ballymun Road, with many other schools. Each year we choose our favourite few songs from that repertoire to sing at the Communion and Confirmation. 

Every second year, the 4th and 5th classes get the chance to take part in the National Children's Choir. This is a great opportunity for every child to perform with an orchestra on a big stage.
