Although there was a sense of disappointment on the night, the team consisting of Maria Corrigan, Caoimhe Shiel and Megan Cronin should be very proud of their achievements this year.
The Final will be take place in the National Basketball Arena, Tallaght on Thursday 19th March against Santa Sabina Sutton.
21 of our Students ranging from 2nd Year to 5th Year will be performing in Emmanuel '09, a concert that is coming up next Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th of March 2009.
Emmanuel is a project of the Dublin Diocesan Commission for Sacred Music and promotes the use of Sacred Music in Secondary Schools.
The night will be one to remember with 550 students performing 23 songs that they have been learning in school for the past few months on each night.
The orchestra, massed choirs will be conducted by Ian Callanan, a member of the Music Commission.
It will be a great night out so please if you are free come along and bring a gang with you. These young people need and deserve to be supported.
The students involved are:
Fiona O Donoghue
Orla Ni Dhuill
Two 5th year students will be performing instrumentally on both nights.
Those students are:
Nuala O Donovan
Tickets are €15 and available from The Helix
We would like to take this opportunity to wish our participants the best on luck on the night and thank their teachers Ms. Fionnuala Doyle and Ms. Mairead McGuire for all their hard work and dedication in preparing the students.

On 9th March, The Association of Teachers of Spanish will hold their annual quiz in St. Michael's School, Ballsbridge. There is huge interest from students studying Spanish from Transition Year, 5th and 6th Year. Teams are made up of four students however, only 3 teams per school are permitted to enter. Therefore, we will have to have our own mini quiz, in-house and select our best candidates to go forward. The quiz is always a fun and informal night for both students and teachers with refreshments being served at half time. There will be lots of spot prizes on the night and who knows we could be presented with the annual cup at the end of the quiz!
