SCHOOL EVENTS

Con­grat­u­la­tions to all those who par­tic­i­pated in the 2008 St. Ger­ard’s School Mu­sic Fes­ti­val. The event was a tremendous suc­cess and show­cases the broad ar­ray of tal­ent we have in the school. The 35 acts, com­prised of 60 par­tic­i­pants, were in­stru­men­tal in mak­ing the evening such an en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence. The prize win­ners were Sarah-Kate Fenelon (In­stru­men­tal), Eabha MacMa­hon and An­drew Hozier-Byrne (Vo­claists) and Tom Cullen, Jack Bren­nan and Rory LaHart (Bands). A spe­cial word of thanks to our Mu­sic Depart­ment (Ms. Diane Owens, Ms. Paula Hill­man, Ms. Ciara O’Con­nell and Mr. Cyrile Lau­rens) for their role in or­gan­is­ing, host­ing and judg­ing the com­pe­ti­tion acts.

ST. GER­ARD’S DAY

In a pre­vi­ous edi­tion of this pub­li­ca­tion ref­er­ence was made to the cel­e­bra­tion of St. Ger­ard’s Day and the tremendous spirit and friend­ship we en­joy as part of the school com­mu­nity. We are de­lighted with the re­sponse to the spon­sored Su­gar Loaf Race, which is held on the day and raises funds for char­ity. This year the Race raised •9,063 for Tem­ple Street Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal. The pro­ceeds will be used to pur­chase mon­i­tors for the A&E Unit of the Hospi­tal. Thank you to ev­ery­body who sup­ported this won­der­ful cause.
