Speech & Drama Success 2018

7th Nov 2018

St Mary's has over 100 children participating at individual or group level, in the annual Speech and Drama Festival, in the Belmont Hotel. The Principal and staff of our school are so very proud of all the boys and girls involved in this significant public speaking event. The standard is exceptionally high. Many of our pupils have already won medals and certificates of achievements, in their individual classes. Well done to each and every one of you.

Kathy Colgan, our Speech and Drama teacher, entered a group of children, including some of the older boys and girls from her drama group, to represent our school in the group classes of 'Good Conversation,' 'Dramatisation of a Poem' and Choral Speaking.

Imagine the delight today, when the children achieved two first placed awards and a second placed award, at primary school level.

  •  The Gillen Shield, awarded for the Dramatisation of a poem, PIRATES.
  • The Anderson Cup, awarded for group choral speaking, THE CLOWNS and The TRAIN

More impressive silverware for our wee school!! We are so excited to be able to show off this collection to our school community.

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Kathy Colgan and her assistant, Derval Rea, for their passion and dedication to our pupils. We know that we are very privileged to be able to avail of this talent and expertise.
