Holy Family School JCSP students participated in a film making initiative. Along with their teacher Sean Herlihy, professionals
from the film industry organised a 3 days workshop with our students. These include Director Cathy Heffernan, Mind the Gap Producer Anne Heffernan, Videographer Sean Power (Powerpix Productions), Ray Watson (Go Pro) and Lorraine Creed (photographer).
Over the 3 days, Holy Family students planned, wrote a script, assigned roles, auditioned, directed, produced and edited a short film about their dream career. The students are so proud of the finished high quality short film. I think they deserve an Oscar!
Transition Year A and B went to RTE as part of their media studies class. Sarah-Jane our own P.E teacher is a TV Presenter for RTE.
She gave Ty A & B a tour of RTE newsroom weather studio, Late Late Show studio and finally the set of Fair City. TY students created their own news clip in the newsroom. Watch out Sarah-Jane, you have got competition!
On Sunday 9th December nine students from Holy Family Deaf Choir (Junior and Senior) performed in the Round Room of the Mansion House Dublin. Some of the songs we performed were Snow is Falling, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, Let it Go just to mention just a few of the songs. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as we brought the 500 strong audience to their feet applauding to us. Thank you to our Lord Mayor Niall Ring for the invitation and giving us this opportunity. Hopefully we will be back again next year.
