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.
The TY students who have travelled to Madrid will spend a month there with host families and return to Ireland on 4th May. They attend school with their Spanish friends and get involved in family activities. Here's some lovely photographs (thanks very much to Ms Burke-Kennedy) of some of the beautiful sights in Madrid under clear blue skies! The first picture is of Ruth Crowe getting in some horse riding during the first couple of days.
Huge congratulations to all the girls and boys involved in the recent TY musical. Here's just a selection of the photos:
As part of our celebrations to mark Proclamation Day on Tuesday 15th March, we formed the numbers 1916 by having everyone line out on the front pitch.
