A Dublin school for deaf children are set to perform on the Late Late Toy Show tomorrow night - writes dublinlive.ie

Holy Family School for the Deaf in Cabra are ready to light up the classic show with an 'amazing' performance.

The junior choir includes children ranging from four years of age to 12.

All the children from the school take part in choir lessons, and 18 were chosen to audition for the Toy Show.

Choir conducter Shirley Higgins told Dublin Live: "We thought we'd just try to audition as thousands of schools do every year and we were very lucky.

"When we found out we were going to perform, the children lifted the roof off they school.

"Now they're counting down the days.

"We're keeping a video diary for all the kids to keep for when they grow up.

"They're not at all nervous, there's just so much excitement. For their age it's brilliant! It also helps their confidence so much."

Speaking about the school's incredible work, she added: "The current school is an amalgamation of two schools - St Mary's Girl's School for the Deaf and St Joseph's Boy's School for the Deaf, which joined together a year ago.

"The primary school has choir every Friday. We make music visual so they can experience it in a different way.

"In the school, teachers modify and differentiate the curriculims. The students at second level then go on to sit the Junior Cert, the Leaving Cert or the Leaving Cert Applied.

"The school caters for all needs for the students."

The Late Late Toy Show, which is hosted by Ryan Tubridy , is watched by a whopping 1.5million people every year.
