Our Spring Concert was held on Thursday 11th April and can only be described as an ‘all-round success’. This wonderful event allowed Mr Bradley (Head of Music) to showcase the outstanding musical talent in the school. The audience responded with rapturous applause and standing ovations on the night, and indeed we are still receiving messages of appreciation. £1370 was raised from the event and this will go towards covering the remaining costs of the Senior Choir’s Prague trip. If you missed it…..don’t worry! You can see some of the highlights on our YouTube channel.

Our school choir, comprised of sixty talented senior students, travelled to Prague on Thursday 21st of March to compete in the prestigious Prague Young Bohemia competition. This was our school’s sixth time to participate in the festival and we were truly delighted to secure an ‘overall’ win for the second successive time. Under the supervision of Mr Bradley and Mrs O’Neill, the girls had a fantastic all-round cultural experience. Some of the highlights of the trip included an impromptu singalong outside Prague Castle and a Saturday morning performance to a packed St. Nicolas’ Cathedral, which received raucous applause from locals and tourists alike. Friday night’s competition saw a breath-taking performance of five pieces, which the girls and their choir master Mr Bradley put their hearts and souls into. This was the culmination of many months of rehearsal. The girls competed against choirs from Germany, Switzerland, Italy and the extremely popular Mount Sion Choir from Waterford. Commenting on the win, our highly esteemed Mr Bradley said “I am thrilled to have received this endorsement of our school’s choir. To achieve an accolade at this highest level is just brilliant. This success means that we have now won outright in the only two categories for which we are eligible – ‘Girls Choirs’ (2016) and ‘Spiritual and Gospel’ this time round.” There has been fantastic media interest in our success. UTV Live will air our story on Friday 29th March and we will also feature in local newspapers, the ‘Tyrone Constitution’ and the ‘Tyrone Herald’.
We are absolutely delighted to be announced top of the 2019 Northern Ireland GCSE League Table!
