During Book Week, we had an In-School Art Competition on the theme of books. There were 2 winners picked from each classroom who got to choose a free book from the Book Fair. 

The winners from  Ms. Power’s Classroom were Georgia McCordick & Rebecca Ward. Here are the book covers they designed! 

There were 2 winners in Ms. Dennehy’s Classroom too! They were  Will James & Rebecca Neale who drew pictures of their favourite character.

Junior & Senior Infants drew their favourite character and the winning entries were Savannah McCordick & Adam Byrnes.

Well done to all the children who entered! The standard of artwork was very high and picking the winners wasn’t easy for the teachers!

Here are the displays of each classroom’s entries into the competition!

Making spring daffodils in the Middle Classroom

With spring slow to arrive with snow and frost forecast, the Middle classroom decided to make their own daffodils and create their own bright springlike display.  Using paints and egg cartons, they painted the egg carton shapes and stuck them to their paintings which were prepared earlier.
