Commenting on these successes, Headmaster, Mr Thompson said,

‘I am very proud of the terrific success enjoyed by our girls in the Holywood Festival this year. The Bangor area contains a large number of dance and drama schools which nurtures and develops the talents of our young people so well. With its Annual Bangor Festival and Open House Festival, the town has become something of a hub for the performing arts in the province. Here at Glenlola Collegiate, we are delighted to be able to offer those girls a wide range of opportunities to continue developing those interests and talents and at the moment we are all very much looking forward to the forthcoming school production of ‘Sister Act’ running from 6th to 8th December.’
