School Around the Corner
The much-loved TV series School Around the Corner returns for a very special programme this Christmas hosted by Ray D'Arcy.
Ray will be joined in studio by children from Waterford, Cork and Dublin primary schools, who'll chat about their friendships, their school and what's the best thing about Christmas, asking: how does Santa manage to get down the chimney? And where does Santa go for his holidays, after the big day?
Ray visits Presentation Primary in Waterford, Scoil Bhride in Ranelagh and St. Josephs, Glanmire, Co. Cork to meet the children and get a personal tour of their schools.
Also joining Ray in studio will be celebrities, who have paid a visit to their old school and tell Ray all about their time at their School Around The Corner, including Nicky Byrne who revisits his old school in Baldoyle, and Una Healy from The Saturdays, who made a trip back to her primary school in Thurles, Tipperary. Una will also perform the Christmas classic White Christmas accompanied by her uncle, Declan Nerney.
In addition the programme will feature a nativity performance by local school children and the Palestrina Boys Choir will perform a rendition of Silent Night.
