Rehearsals continue for the school musical, Les Miserables, which is being put on as a joint production with St Marys in St Michael’s Theatre from April 21st to 25th inclusive.

The Transition Year group took to the mountains of Wicklow on Thursday and Friday with Teachers Mr. Coffey, Mr. McDonald and Mr. Moran. They undertook an 18Km hike on the first day, and after a sleepover in the Glendalough hostel, went on to complete another 10km on Friday,. With clear but cool weather the group had ideal conditions for their expedition which was undertaken as part of their An Gaisce awards. Particular thanks to Mr Coffey for his work in setting this up.

A thank you also to Miss Wessley for all the time she has put in to collating entries and contact details. It promises to be a great occassion .
