I want to thank you for the great day that our students had last week. The sense of validation was immense for these young people. They sacrificed so much of their free time and dedicated themselves fully to the project. To be included amongst the top schools and productions in the country was an amazing feeling for them. We fully realise that the awards are placed at the theatre's love of encouraging youth theatre, and that everyone involved went well out of their way for the students.

On behalf of all the students and teachers from Gaelscoil Chill Mhantáin who attended the Bord Gáis Energy Student Theatre Awards on Wednesday afternoon, I want to thank you deeply for providing such a wonderful initiative for students to take part in drama, singing and dancing. The excitement the children have felt since being named on the shortlist has been immeasurable. Every aspect of the awards from the entry process right through to the awards ceremony has been perfectly organised, right down to the smallest detail. The posters and banners of support we received in the post and the lanyards we received on the day of the awards gave an extra special and personal touch to the whole experience. The children (and teachers) felt like VIPs for the day and were made to feel like all their efforts in putting on their school play/musical was truly valued and appreciated. It really has been the most incredible experience and one the children will never forget. For this, I would like to thank each and every person, most sincerely, who had a hand in making this possible and congratulate you on such a successful awards ceremony!

I had to get in touch to compliment you all on a fabulous day. The organisation was brilliant and everyone we came in contact with was so friendly. Also you will never know what a confident boost you have given to both my students by shortlisting them. It's a nice way to end the year alright. It used to be just sports awards but now a lot of students are acknowledged for loads of different achievements. Thanks so much!

Thanks to you all in Bord Gais for a wonderful day at the Awards Ceremony. We really appreciate all you are doing for the theatre and the arts for our schools. Our student, who won the Best Review for a dramatic production was overjoyed by the presentation. This encouragement will greatly stand to him. Thank you and keep it up. We will be back again next year as we too are very committed to the arts.

Thank you so much for a wonderful day on Friday. If we had just done that, that would be brilliant. We all had such a great day! Thank you all for the most wonderful, amazing and positive experience we had being part of your awards. It was a pleasure to be a part of it. The icing on the cake was coming away with two awards! The children and I will have such great memories from this experience. Thank you so much!
