The 2018 JPA art competition

The JPA held an art competition for all the boys and girls just before the holidays. The artwork was super and the kids put a lot of effort into it!
Below you will see the pictures that were chosen as the finalists of each category and I think you’ll agree the children were very creative and imaginative.

The prizes were:
1st prize (younger groups) €25 Smyths voucher
2nd prize (younger groups) €15 Smyths voucher
3rd prize (younger groups) €10 Smyths voucher
4th prize Easter egg

1st prize (older groups) €25 Lifestyle Sports voucher
2nd prize (older groups) €15 Lifestyle Sports voucher
3rd prize (older groups) €10 Lifestyle Sports voucher
4th prize Easter egg

We would like to wish everybody a Happy Easter and a well-deserved break!
Looking forward to the new term and exciting events ahead.
Best wishes,

Your JPA.

The JPA would like to sincerely thank the Duke Art Gallery along with Pamela and Tom Byrne for their generous donation and of course their time.

And considering Gabriella did so well in the Google Doodle competition appreciation and skills associated with the arts are incredibly important, in today’s world. Many thanks for all the teachers and principles that put the effort in – especially our own – hardest working… Easter bunny… ! All art is still in the parish hall for viewing. Have a lovely break everyone.
