The Big Challenge

Seamus McFly is a teacher in a remote village on the west coast of Ireland. The day after St Patrick’s Day, he is being transferred to a school in Dublin, the distant capital. Poor Seamus, as soon as he arrives in his new school, he will meet the mischievous Meany sisters and their simpleton cousin. Despite the fact that Seamus feels able to overcome any obstacle, he will be tested by the terrible twosome.

 … a great show performed by the Esmerald Isle Theatre Company !

A group of young actors from all over Ireland visited our school on Tuesday the 24th of April. The play was organized at the Concorde, for the 3rd and 4th graders only. Students were allowed to help and participate in the play. They had to be in the school premises at 8:00am, it was a very good occasion to exercise and practice our English.

Each student had a different role, some had to play the role of a pupil, some had to do press ups and others had to do the Irish dance. The actors were very funny and very nice. The audience also contributed to the show by encouraging and cheering the actors.

This show was a good and different way of leaning English, the vocabulary was prepared in class and that really helped us to understand the play. It was also a very good excuse to miss classes : p

Those who participated in the play were asked to wait after the show to take pictures with the “stars”.
