Peace Proms 2023
Peace Proms is a music education resource for Primary Schools which culminates in a large-scale performance for choirs and orchestra at iconic venues throughout the USA, Ireland and Northern Ireland. The programme promotes ‘peace through music’ and already engages almost 35,000 children from 600 schools giving them the opportunity to sing in a large-scale production with a choir of up to 3,000 and a full symphony youth orchestra.
The Hansfield Peace Proms Choir, consisting of 67 singers from 4th and 5th Class, was once again part of this wonderful annual event. After months of practice and instruction from Emily, Kathy Elaine O, Bernadine and Aishling O, the choir went on stage with other schools from around Ireland in an entertaining and uplifting concert at the RDS on Saturday 4th February 2023.
Something for future 4th and 5th Class pupils to be part of!! Check out our photos......
Community Inter-school quiz
On Monday, 30th January Hansfield ETNS was represented at the Blanchardstown Community Credit Union Inter-School by some of the best quizzers in Hansfield.
Held in the Crowne Plaza in Blanchardstown, 32 schools entered over 50 teams for the event, with over 200 students in attendance.
The Minister for Children, Roderic O’Gorman, joined in the fun and acted as Quiz Master.
Our two teams did very well and represented our school with aplomb!
Well done to our quizzers and a huge thanks to Joe and Alison for organising and accompanying the children on the night.
In the weeks before Christmas, 5th Class took part in Marathon Kids, organised by Dublin City Marathon and Fingal County Council, whereby over 8 weeks they would complete a full marathon of 26.2 miles.
The children ran around the school yard and local area over the weeks, culminating today with the Final Mile in Ongar Park, and we were there to capture the moment...
Well done to everyone on your wonderful achievement. Hopefully, we've created some runners for the future!
PTA Hot Chocolate & Cookie Day
Once gain, our PTA put on a wonderful event for everyone at Hansfield while at the same time raising funds for the school.
With the freezing weather, what could be better than a hot chocolate and cookie at pick-up time??? It was no mean feat to make hot chocolate and cookies for hundreds of parents and children but, as usual, the PTA made it look effortless.
We hope you enjoyed the day. A huge thank to the PTA and to all of you who came along, joined the long queue and supported and had fun!!!
You raised an astonishing €1,064 for our school.
A message from King Charles
When Queen Elizabeth II passed away last September, Gillian P's 4th Class took it upon themselves to send a letter of condolence to the new King Charles.
They were delighted this morning to receive a card from King Charles thanking them for reaching out to him and his family at a very sad time for them.
It seems the King was thankful for this kind gesture from the pupils at Hansfield ETNS.
Festive Door Competition
In a bumper week of seasonal fun, yesterday saw the judging of the Festive Door Competition by our resident judges, our PTA!!
