We are calling on all young people up to and including 18 years of age to draw a picture of their real life hero in this difficult time of the Corona Virus.
Your hero could be a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, ambulance service, gardai, fire service, army, an post, shop assistant, van driver, Leo Varadkar, Simon Harris, Dr. Tony Holohan, your granny cocooning – in fact anyone who is playing their part to keep us all safe.
You can use paints or draw with pencils or use anything you like once it’s on an A4 page. Feel free to give your own unique ‘Title’ to your entry. There are 4 age categories and prizes range from €50 to €500. The artists and their heroes in the winning portraits will also be honoured at a special presentation in August 2020 (which will be confirmed at a later date)
Entries must be submitted by the 30th June 2020 and the artwork will be displayed online at the end of the competition.
Young Light invites young people to design posters that celebrate their community and surroundings. As we head out of lockdown and begin to reacquaint ourselves with our local area, we can see things in a new light, colours become more vibrant, people and places can hold more significance.
Across the country young people will create artworks that celebrate their local area, capturing the colours and light of your part of the country or the people and places that make it unique.
The Glucksman are providing video tutorials and live online art sessions to help you with creations as well as tips and ideas on our social media channels.
To all the families and children in Scoil Mhuire Lourdes,
It has been such a challenging and strange time for us all and we have missed you so much. From your smiles on the corridor to the sounds of song singing coming from the hall. We have enjoyed every second of engaging with you and seeing the amazing work that you have been doing at home with your families. You have shone brighter than we could ever have anticipated and we are so proud of the sacrifices you have made to help others.
We are not sure what September will look like just yet, but what we do know is that we cannot wait to see you all, hear about your Summer and get you all back on track with your learning. As soon as more information comes we will update all of our families.
Next week Ms.Coen will post an activity each day for ‘Arts Appreciation’ week. Seeing as it is the last week of school there will be no formal learning packs.😊
Please contact email@example.com if you have any queries- the teachers will also be taking a well deserved break so will be unavailable for emails after Friday 26th June. We will be in contact with 6th class regarding a little gift from our school in the coming days….keep an eye on your texts for updates!
We wish you a wonderful Summer break full of health and happiness.🌞
Our school is delighted to announce that we are rolling out the Aladdin ePayment system to parents/guardians of children in our school.
Our school uses the Aladdin software service for administrative purposes and the ePayment system will give you access from an internet browser on your computer, phone or tablet to make secure payments to the school using your credit or debit card. The purpose of the ePayment system is to facilitate the easier payment of school money collections for parent/guardians and to reduce the amount of cash and cheques being sent into our school in line with recent central bank directives.
Aladdin uses state of the art security to safeguard information entered by you and the school and data is stored and processed in strict compliance with Irish data protection laws.
Going forward, when money is due for any school activity that is relevant to your children, you will receive a text containing your payment access link. Please do not forward this text or share this access link as this link is unique for your family only. The link will bring you to a parent payment page which will contain all payments requested for all siblings in a family. There is only one link per family ensuring you have the option to pay all amounts due for all your children in one transaction. Once you have completed your payment, you will be issued with a reference number. You will also receive an email receipt which will contain details of the transaction and reference number. Please quote this reference number in any queries you may have as regards this payment with the school.
Should it be the case that you do not wish your email address or phone number to be used to receive details relating to payment access links and new payment requests, please let us know.
We hope that you will find the Aladdin ePayments facility useful and that it is a very successful system for all. The secretary or myself will welcome any feedback or questions you may have.
The girls in 4th class examined the painting ‘Sunflowers’ by Vincent Van Gogh and they had to design and create their own version of the painting. Here is some of their creative work below. Great work girls!
