St. Vincents Primary School

Musical Tradition in St Vincents

St Vincent’s has a long tradition of musical excellence. From the time of the renowned Sr Benedicta our students have partaken in choirs. and musical ensembles of recorders and even african drumming. We see the value of arts in education and our boys and girls enjoy musical creativity and learning.


St Vincent’s choirs have taken part in numerous events over the years. From Cork International Choral Festival, Cór Fhéíle na Scol, Feis Maitiú, to secular and sacramental events in the North Cathedral we have entranced our audiences and earned many prizes and accolades.

Musical Theatre

In recent years, thanks to the expertise of staff members such as the amazing Leslieanne Matthews we have put on some spectacular musical productions such as The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins and our most recent –  Matilda the Musical Jr. Partaking in these whole-school events develops musical ability, creativity, confidence and a sense of community in our students. With the enhancement of professional sound and lighting systems, these events are a chance to celebrate and showcase the children’s dedication and talent.
