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.
