Amy Huberman has said judging the country's up-and-coming theatre talent takes her back to her school days.

The Dubliner is part of the panel for the Bord Gáis Energy Student Theatre Awards which are open to primary school pupils from 3rd to 6th class and all secondary school students.

Amy was joined by students from Coláiste Pobail Setanta in Clonsilla, who are performing the musical Hairspray, for the launch of the awards.

"It brings me back to school days, we did plays but nothing of this scale," Amy said. "It's great there's a platform for schoolkids all over the country to get involved."

Shortlisted schools will be invited to an award ceremony at the theatre in May.
