Thursday 12th December marked a very special night for Drogheda Grammar School as we celebrated our annual Christmas Carol Service. With over 400 people in attendance at The Bevan Lamb Hall, the night comprised a memorable programme of music, (expertly led by music teacher Ms. Tamlyn Norris), carols and readings.

First to Sixth-year students showcased their musical talent which was a joy for all to hear. We were honoured to have past principals and members of our Board of Management present to deliver readings. In celebrating the present and looking forward to the future, we are particularly grateful to those who have contributed to the success of the past 350 years. A special note of gratitude was offered to previous Board of Management Chairmen Charlie Allen and Robert Berney who played an influential role in the development of our school in our more recent history.

As part of our celebration of 350 years of education, the night was made all the more special as a book on the history of the school was launched. Co-authored by Principal Hugh Baker and local historian, John McCullen, the book includes stories and pictures documenting the school from its opening in 1669 to the present day. Anyone interested in purchasing the book can contact the school office on 041-9838281.
