St Piran’s Day 2019

March 7th, 2019 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Events | Gallery | News

To celebrate St Piran’s Day some of our Year 8 students got involved with a community event which celebrated the national day of Cornwall.  Primary schools from Launceston joined in with St Joseph’s students in a parade throughout the town, interspersed with Cornish songs and dances.  Our students really enjoyed singing along and waving their flags to the members of the public who all came to see the parade.  The event culminated in a small concert held in Launceston Town Hall.  Each school sang a song or read a poem to celebrate St Piran’s Day.  Our Year 8s chose to perform a piece of African Drumming music which imitated the sound of the Cornish tin mines.  Well done to all those who were involved!
