What a great couple of days we have had here at St Dominic’s with our 4th and 5th class production of The Wizard of Oz.
Ms Farrell and Mr Looney want to thank everybody who helped out – the teachers and SNA’s who helped with artwork and choreography, the parents who helped with costumes and facepainting, and, of course, our principal Mr Vaughan for supporting the project from the start.Most of all, everyone here at St Dominic’s gives a huge bualadh bos to our girls and boys from 4th and 5th Class who put so much work into rehearsals.
Check out their wonderful costumes and makeup below. Let us know what you thought of the show by leaving a comment below. What characters did you enjoy, and what was your favourite scene?

Christmas is always a special time at St Dominic’s. On any given schoolday in mid-December, you’ll hear carols and songs being practiced in classrooms and our hall ahead of the Christmas concert. You’ll also see some wonderful artwork and decorations adorning our school. Take a look at just a few examples below. Can you spot where each picture has been taken?
