Music & Drama

Music plays a great role in the life of the school. Choirs, jazz bands and traditional Irish music can often be heard around the corridors of the school. All First Years study Music and have the option of continuing to study it for their Junior Cycle and in turn, for the Leaving Certificate. All students can also participate in the wide variety of extra curricular music on offer in the school.

In recent years, our Junior, Senior and Chamber Choirs have had much success representing the school in various competitions in the highest grades. Our Jazz Band performs at major local events, particularly at Christmas and at the end of the school year. The Traditional Irish Music Band has also grown in popularity in recent years and their performances have entertained both the school and local communities in recent years. We have also been blessed with some fine individual musicians through the years, all presented with the opportunities to allow their talents to flourish as they grow.

The Drama Society is our most recent group to be formed in the School. This group brings Transition Year students together to act and perform a school musical. In recent times, the school has produced and prepared for famous musicals such as “High School Musical”, “Grease” and “All Shook Up”. We have also enjoyed much success over the years in Poetry Aloud competitions, debating and public speaking competitions. Indeed, many such competitions have been hosted by the school. We are also proud to have hosted many Writers in Residence, giving students the opportunity to meet and work with creative writers and poets in order to develop their creative writing skills.
