There have been great celebrations this week as we have enjoyed more success in the music department. Our joint choir with Mercy College has won the Flax Trust Inter-Community School Choir Award. This competition took place on Thursday 15th December in City Hall, Belfast with Mr Noel Thompson, BBC as compere for the evening. 16 primary and post-primary schools participated, each singing 2 contrasting songs.

Twenty of our boys joined with twenty girls from Mercy College and sang Africa - Toto, as well as, Starry, Starry Night - Don McLean. Our choir was presented with the George Quigley Cup for Most Accomplished Senior Choir and we were awarded a cheque for £500.
