THE ARTS

Our Tran­si­tion Year pro­duc­tion of the hit mu­si­cal Guys and Dolls took place prior to the mid-term break and it most cer­tainly was, a hit. The cast and crew put on the most en­joy­able and pro­fes­sional of shows dur­ing both mati­nees and evening per­for­mances. The lead­ing roles were por­trayed with pas­sion and true com­mit­ment and high­light the wealth of in­nate tal­ent the stu­dents pos­sess out­side of the aca­demics.

Fol­low­ing the pro­duc­tion our Tran­si­tion Years have now taken to the wilds of Done­gal for the an­nual trip to Gar­tan out­door pur­suits and ad­ven­ture cen­tre.

The trip will see the group try their hand at a host of out­door ac­tiv­i­ties where they will dis­cover new skills and tal­ents.

The St. Ger­ard’s School Drama Group swept the boards at the St. Andrew’s Drama Fes­ti­val prior to the mid-term break. Evie Weir (3rd year) won Best Ac­tor, Shane Ken­neally (1st year) was run­ner-up in the Best Ac­tor cat­e­gory, St. Ger­ard’s School were run­ner-up in the Best Play cat­e­gory and Ms. Eithne Car­ney won Best Di­rec­tor. Ms. Car­ney has been awarded Best Di­rec­tor at the Fes­ti­val twice in the last three years. Congratulations to all in­volved in the re­hearsals, pro­duc­tion and per­for­mance of the var­i­ous pieces.

SPORT­ING PRESS

In sport we con­grat­u­late St. Ger­ard’s Show Jump­ing team who won the Open In­ter­schools Showjump­ing competition in Boswells Eques­trian Cen­tre. This is our sec­ond win in the Hoof­prints League, our first be­ing back in Septem­ber.

Our Cross Coun­try team lined up to take the field in the Le­in­ster Schools Cross Coun­try in Fe­bru­ary. We were proud to en­ter our largest rep­re­sen­ta­tion in the event with Elena Tice, Laura Finnerty, Lau­ren Lynch and Mark Gal­lagher rac­ing. All three run­ners per­formed well but were just out­side the qual­i­fy­ing spots for the All Ire­lands.
