This year pupils from 4th, 5th and 6th class will be performing in the school's musical which will be a modern day version of Robin Hood. Acting and dancing auditions took place in January and rehearsals are currently underway.
St. Corban's Robin Hood is a tale of the dashing, the dastardly and the dumb. Robin Hood must protect the people of Naas from the tyranny of the evil sheriff Simon Cowell, while protecting Maid Marian from the sheriff's advances. Meanwhile the sheriff's two best men, Ant and Dec are carrying out their master's orders with all the efficiency and intelligence of a sloth on strike from the Glass Hammer Store. Will Robin get the girl? Will the Sheriff's evil plans prevail? Will Ant and Dec figure out what comes after 3? Find out in the Moat Theatre on the 31st of May, 1st and 2nd of June 2017.
Tickets for the musical can be bought only through the school and will go on sale in April. Adult tickets are 10 euro and children 5 euro.
On the 5th of February the school choir travelled to the RDS, Dublin to performance in the 2017 Peace Proms. They joined 2,500 children from other schools and choirs from around the country to perform a variety of songs and medleys with a group of live musicians in front of an audience of 4,000. A big 'Thank You' to the boy's families and friends who came along to support them on the day. A great time was had by all.
Safer Internet Day will take place on the 7th of February 2017. With pupils having more access to the internet through devices and computers, both in school and out, an awareness of internet safety and cyberbullying is imperative.

We had a very special visitor to our school last Friday morning, Mr. Paul O' Connell. He inspired the boys with his words of encouragement about healthy eating, exercise, fun and friends.. It was a wonderful surprise for both staff and pupils and will be a moment remembered and treasured by all.
We were delighted to have Santa Claus visit St. Corbans before he begins his busy journey on Christmas Eve. Junior infants entertained him with their lovely Christmas singing. Santa got a great reception from all the boys and their teachers. Thanks to Santa, his elf and especially Ms. Mc Cormack for making it possible.
Many thanks to all the teachers, staff and in particular the boys and their families for supporting the shoebox appeal this year. The appeal was an amazing success with a contribution of 242 boxes in total. Your generosity and kindness will not only make a child’s Christmas this year, it has also reminded the boys of the true meaning of Christmas and the spirit of giving.
On the day the Naas minors came to our school everyone was excited. They showed us the GAA trophy and the hurling trophy. Everyone was outside, some people made flags and banners. The three team captains made speeches and so did Mr Drewett . It was a big achievement for them to win their matches. At the end of the speeches we all shouted ‘no Homework’, so they gave us no Homework. It was a victorious day for Naas.
