Bord Gáis Energy Student Theatre Awards 2015

 

Last year at the Bord Gáis Energy Student Theatre Awards, one of our current Leaving Certificate Students was awarded the top accolade in the best short scene script category for her script entitled Fighting with myself.

The judges, including Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch, actor Simon Delaney, Emmy award-winning animator Mårten Jönmark from Brown Bag Films and leading Irish fashion designer Emma Manley, chose Anna’s script from hundreds of entries. They enjoyed the script and felt the concept was a good metaphor for the struggles that some teens may face.

As part of the prize, the school also received a bursary from Bord Gáis Energy. This was used to purchase some books for the school library which were chosen by our award winning script writer who is also a very enthusiastic member of our Senior Book Club. We are extremely proud of her achievements and thank you for choosing such a wonderful selection of titles for our library.
