'An Evening of Entertainment' - Celebrating our school's 60th year

A huge thank you to everyone in our school community for all of your hard work, dedication and support which made for a memorable night of top class entertainment. The evening began with an outstanding performance of 'Broken Cups', the PJ O'Connor award winning play, written by our former Deputy Principal Noel Monahan. Choral performances, soloists and instrumental pieces also showcased the incredible and diverse musical talent we're so privileged to have at St. Clare's College.
