The Convent Primary School first opened in 1910 and has a long tradition of participation in musical events. Choir practice is a weekly event on Thursday mornings for 5th and 6th classes in The Convent Primary. The school has previously taken part in the Peace Proms event in City Hall, Cork and more recently in The Hub in Kilkenny. We, as a school love performing in various parish and community events in Mallow town, especially in the run up to Christmas.
For the last number of years, 6th class pupils have performed an end of year musical for the school community. Recent performances include well known titles like Hairspray, Grease, Mama Mia and Cinderella Rockerfella. Performing, singing and playing music, especially the tin-whistle is an intrinsic part to life in The Convent Primary, Mallow and thoroughly enjoyed by our pupils.
