The Visual Arts programme is always a very enjoyable part of our school curriculum. There are several strands in the programme: Drawing, Paint & Colour, Print, Clay, Construction and Fabric & Fibre. We want our pupils to have a love and an appreciation  of art and to be able to respond to art work from all the strands of our curriculum.

We regularly organise art competitions in the school to encourage the children to produce their best work. The Green Schools Committee, the Active Schools Committee and the Students Council use these competitions to awaken interest in their areas. Pupils from the school also enter several art competitions every year – both local and national. Over the years we have had many winners in these competitions.

December 2016: Carla Byrne wins County Award in “Someone Like Me” Competition
Congratulations to Carla Byrne in 2nd class, who won the County Award for Wexford in a National competition organised by the Department of Justice and Equality. The Competition, “Someone Like Me” required the pupils to convey a message of inclusion and equality. Carla's entry was a 3D depiction of children, including a little girl in a wheelchair, playing basketball together. Congratulations too, to Carla's teacher, Mrs O' Meara and to all the pupils in the class who entered the competition. It encouraged all the children to think about the importance of inclusion.

Carla received her prize at the award ceremony in Farmleigh House, Dublin on 12th December and she was accompanied by her mother and her teacher. Her prize was presented by Finian McGrath, Minister of State at the Department of Justice and Equality with responsibility for disability issues. The 3 judges were very impressed with the standard of Carla's entry. Following the presentation ceremony and refreshments, Carla and all the other winners enjoyed a “Winter Wonderland” experience at Farmleigh.
