The Music & Drama Department of The King's Hospital school were absolutely thrilled to have no less than five students receive High Achiever Awards this year from the Royal Irish Academy of Music (RIAM), for an outstanding performance in their exams. The RIAM examined approximately 42,000 students this year. The award winners were invited to send in a video of their performance and two students were then further selected to perform at the High Achiever Awards Concert in the O'Reilly Theatre on November 12th, 2017. All the Award Winners were invited to the concert to accept their medals. Well done to all the students and their teachers!
The winners were:
