Would there be any use in a Rydberg equation for Helium

In highschool I took an advanced physics class, in which we learned the Bohr Derivation, after the lesson my teacher then drew a model of Helium then explained that no one however had come up with the equation to represent the spectral lines of Helium, so i had taken on this challenge to see if I could do it, and after about four weeks I had gotten the two equations necessary to explain Helium spectral lines (excluding other effects, l,m, and s) then so happens the day I told him about it in class he taught that the Schrodinger wave equation Superseded the Bohr model of the atom.
I was curious if the equations i derived it would be useful at all.
Also along with the spectral equations, i derived the ionization energy equations.
 
Then if it is useful, would it be worth to try to make a publication, even though it has been superseded by Schrodinger's model? and if so, how would I go about to make a possible publication?
 
Also, I have written a paper about it, but it is probably a crude high school level, and I don't know what exactly to do with it.
