The students of Scoil Chonglais performed their version of the well-known love story between Danny and Sandy as they took to the stage over two nights for their musical production of Grease.

It was the Baltinglass school's first-ever musical so the students deserve congratulations for the success of their production.

During the build up to the show, students were eagerly preparing for show-time by dancing, singing and acting their socks off, constantly supported by coordinators Karen Meehan and Orla Greaves, along with sixth year students Roisin Phelan, Saoirse O'Moore and Cillian Brophy.

The High School classic prove a real hit with audiences who packed out Fatima Hall over both nights.

This production highlighted the abundance of talented students attending Scoil Chonglais and the quality on show was undoubtedly of the highest standard.

Meanwhile, transition year students and a small number of fifth year students visited Bilbao in Spain during a weekend school tour.

The students visited a number of museums and the world famous Guggenheim in the cultural city of Bilbao while also engaging in leisure activities such as bowling, swimming and shopping.

They also visited the tourist resort of San Sebastian.
