Our pupils are very ,very busy working on their entries for this year competition...
The theme for the 2015 Credit Union Art Competition is ‘Happiness is...’
The competition is about encouraging and rewarding self expression, creativity and imagination among young artists throughout Ireland.
Competition entrants are free to express their creativity using a wide variety of media.
The competition required entrants to draw or paint posters on the theme using pencil, charcoal, pen or ink, felt-tip markets, crayon, pastel, water colours, gouache, acrylics, oils, poster colour or collage.
There are two categories – General and Special – with five age groups in each:
7 years and under, 8-10 years, 11-13 years, 14-17 years, 18 years and over (and a further Group section in the SPECIAL category).
Welcome back to everyone!
It's a pleasure to be back with the senior classes this year! The current fifth class have had a great transition to the senior room and have been working very well all month. Welcome to Gary, Michael, Leah, Cian, Lena, Patrick, Éabha, James, Liam, Shauna and Niamh.
The current sixth are embarking on their final year with us and are acting as great leaders and role models to the younger children in the school!
This year we have an extra five students in the senior room, bringing the total to twenty one. Eleven in fifth and ten in sixth.
The students have been busy with art projects including Kites and Anti-bullying posters which came out really well. The anti-bullying posters help to highlight the ''friendship fortnight'' initiative being undertaken throughout the school. They are a testament to our very talented and artistic students.
We are now looking forward to the mini-7's competition next week. Both codes will be in action with the hurlers lining out on Tuesday in Gort GAA pitch, followed by our camogie girls on Thursday in St. Thomas' GAA pitch. The children have been training very well in preparation for the competitions and we have some excellent up and coming hurlers/camogie players. Competition for places on the team is fierce! :)
Shane ,a software Engineer took some time out of his busy schedule to talk to our pupils Friday last. He gave our pupils a job description and what it meant to be a software engineer.
They asked him lots of intelligent questions about his job and about the career path
and where it might lead them.
Thanks Shane for your brilliant Presentation....
