Niamh McCay and Andrew Ferry who achieved marks of 95 and 93 have now been chosen to represent the school in the High Achievers Concert in Sligo on October 13 where they will receive silver medals.

They will compete for a place in the concert with other high achievers in National Concert Hall later this year.

Pupils are now studying for Trinity Guildhall exams next month and preparing for their annual charity event on November 11th in the Millennium Forum at which they will all perform.

Money raised annually at the concert goes to the Foyle Hospice.
