A group of Transition Year students from St. Declan’s Community College were nominated for the “Best Musical Number” in the Bord Gáis Energy Student Theatre Awards. This took place in the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre on Wednesday. 4th March. The group comprising of Pippi Griffin and Ryan Houlihan (Vocals), Anna Johnson (Dancer) and Gearoid Murphy (Pianist), were nominated for their rendition of “Say Something”, which the judges commended for its simplicity, class and originality. The students were awarded a trophy for the “Best Musical Number in Ireland”. Entries from over 3,000 schools nationwide were shortlisted into various categories. It was a great achievement to win out of such an extensive group.
The students were accompanied on the day by their teacher Ms. Hennessy, Deputy Principal, Mrs. Dunbar and Transition Year co-ordinator Ms. Mitchell. Thirty three Transition Year students also went along to offer their support.
Congratulations on such a huge achievement!
