On Saturday, 25, February, eight of Aquinas’s Year Eight pupils took part in The Belfast Drama Festival at The Lyric, Belfast. They have been working really hard since September, rehearsing after school every Tuesday, under the very able and very determined tuition of Year Elevens: Sophia Power, Matilda Reid, Grace Nicholson, Caoimhe Magorrian and Lucy MacRandal. The pupils were excellent: they were very professional, focused and, of course, gave a really sound and entertaining performance.

Although our emphasis is on participating, the pupils did very well with all of them achieving a Commendation, three highly-Commended and one Second Place.

Congratulations to all involved: you did Aquinas proud!
