St Angela’s Academy of Music reopens tomorrow, Monday 4th September, for the new academic year 2017-2018. As we look forward to another busy year, it is fitting to look back over the past year and acknowledge the admirable achievements of our music students.
Two trophies were awarded in May 2017. Every year, the Hyland Perpetual Cup is given to the 6th Year Ursuline student who has achieved most musically during her time in secondary school. Cliodhna Heenan was the recipient this year, with Eva Buckley highly recommended. The Dwan Silver Salver is given to the student who achieves the highest mark in any instrument at Grade 8, Senior Cert or Gold Medal level. This honour went to the well-deserving Caitriona Timmins.
In addition to these trophies, many of our students were recognised externally in the RIAM High Achievers Awards and the LSMD Excellence Awards. These were:
RIAM High Achievers Awards 2016-2017
Katie Taylor (twice)
Esha Hourigan Clancy
LSMD Excellence Awards 2016-2017
Laura Jane Hickey
We congratulate all of these students on their fantastic achievements over the past year. And now, on to 2017-2018!
As we embark on the new school year 2016-2017, it is an appropriate time to reflect upon the achievements of the previous year 2015-2016. Our students pushed themselves to extremely high standards and were fittingly rewarded for their efforts. The following are the 2015-2016 recipients of awards given within the school (Hyland Perpetual Cup/Dwan Silver Salver) and also by external bodies (Royal Irish Academy of Music/Leinster School of Music).
