Given the disruption caused by the Covid-19 lockdown, the majority of secondary schools nationally have decided to forgo their shows, because there was not enough rehearsal time left in the year.
Kavanagh College was slick in its organisation and "hopelessly devoted" to running their musical production of Grease on August 25-28.
The show was originally scheduled for May.
College drama and dance head Erica Ward said it was possible only because the pupils were given online videos with lines, music and choreography to learn during lockdown.
"Luckily, before lockdown occurred, we were in a position where we had nearly completed rehearsals for Act 1.
"This meant that we were able to record videos for the students to view.
"We also made new dance videos and shared these with the students so that they could continue to positively look ahead.
"Our lead actors were able to continue reading over their lines.
"Once we were back in action at school, we were able to step back up rehearsals."
She said it was an easy decision to continue with Grease this year, because everyone knew how much it meant to the participating pupils.
"Musicals are a wonderful experience that brings students across years 7-13 together, and it’s an extremely happy place for our students and staff.
"Being in lockdown definitely made us realise how much of a positive influence the musical has had on our wellbeing.
"It is such a rewarding experience that we didn’t see any option but to keep going ahead."
