1916 Commemoration Art Competition Results

1916 Commemoration Art Competition Results

The 1916 Art Competition was run as part of our school's commemoration of the centenary of 1916.   The entries were A3 size and students were asked to create an original artwork inspired by the Easter Rising of 1916.  We think you'll agree that these are all fabulous pieces, inspired by the artist's own impressions of the Easter Rising.  The winning student at both senior and junior levels won €50 vouchers for Dundrum Shopping Centre.

The winners were as follows.

Junior Section:     Ciara Daly 2 Wigmore,    Grace Hayden 2 Wigmore

Senior Section:     Alanna Drury 4L,     Beth Fuller 4O

Well done to all students who took part.  A selection of the entries is currently displayed outside the library.
