Hello everyone, 

Welcome to our school website. 

These are once again very challenging times, but as a school community we have worked together so well for the last few months to ensure that the children, who are central to everything we do, are safe in our learning environment. 

I know that we will continue to support each other over the coming weeks too. If you need anything over the next few weeks please text or Whatsapp me. You might just need a chat or you may need some practical help. Either way do get in touch. 

For those of you visiting our website for the first time, welcome. If you need any further information about our school or wish to enrol your child please email me at principal@ourladyoflourdesns.ie.

Since 2019 3rd/4th class has taken part in music workshops called Republic of Sound with local arts organisation Common Ground and their musicians Colm O’Hara and Maeve O’Hara. Even during lockdown Maeve and Colm created videos for the children to keep practising their music.

In April a live performance of Republic of Sound was cancelled but 4th class were able to perform in September through a film produced by Common Ground that includes additional compositions and improvisations by the children, St James Brass and Reed Band, and the Women’s Group from the Family Resource Centre St Michael’s Estate, Inchicore.

Republic of Sound premiered online as part of Dublin’s Music Town Festival on September 19th 2020. Please take a look at the video below.
