Music at Our Lady of Mercy N.S.
Our Lady of Mercy N.S. provides a holistic musical education with an ethos of inclusion and excellence. Children of all abilities are catered for. In the classroom the children follow “The Right Note” music programme. Every child in the school also performs in annual Christmas concerts and shows. All classes join every year and perform at the Christmas School Mass. Talented singers are often discovered and given ample opportunity to showcase their voices in small groups and in solo settings.
We are also fortunate to have many instrumentalists throughout the school. All pupils are encouraged to perform on their own or in small ensembles.
Musicians often come from outside the school to perform for the children and to introduce them to different musical genres.
